Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The group's critically hailed 1991 international debut mingles revolutionary spirit with the deep tristesse created by Haiti's centuries of loss. Underscoring the lyrics' dense emotional weave is the vibrant mix of traditional African and Caribbean folk forms with modern pop's six-string excitement. The point of equilibrium for Boukman's many-colored musical tapestry is voodoo drumming and the vision those African rhythms evoke of true human community. The set opens with the proud and lovely "Se Kreyo'L Nou Ye" ("We're Creole"), a drum and bamboo flute-based Haitian "rara," that gives way to the pumping guitar chords and full-tilt keyboard boogie that signal the defiance of "Nou La" ("We're Here"). Another standout: "Ke-M Pa Sote" ("My Heart Doesn't Leap/I'm Not Afraid"), became the anthem of the national strike that led to Haiti's first free presidential election. --Elena Oumano

Boukman rocks my world! The music--more grass roots than Haiti's Compa, if you ask me--is so blessed, so politically charged and just, damn GOOD. You need not speak Kreyol to FEEL the essence of Haiti--the drums, the voices, the yelps of pleasure. I am a dancer and Voudou Adjae warms me up. Hips sway, arms wave, feet stomp and chests thrust. Nou pap sa bliye-Se Kreyol Nou ye! Ayibobo! Boukman sounds like home.

If VODOU ADJAE by Boukman Eksperyans sound familiar now, it's only because hundreds of Haitain recordings that followed it were (and still are) trying to copy its style. Very few artist have occupied and captured the Haitain cultural consciousness like these artist have. Like rap's Public Enemy ("It Takes A Nation Of Millions"), Boogie Down Production ("Criminal Minded" "By All Means Necessary"), reggae's Bob Marley (singing about the life and the struggles of his peoples) and R&B legend Marvin Gaye, Boukman Eksperyans have change Haitain music forever. VODOU ADJAE is a flawless masterpiece that distills the myriad experiences of our (not just Hatains) daily lives into a collective unconsciousness of 50 minutes of aural perfection. Without any doubt, this classic is one bright creation that will continue to shine long after the other albums of its time fade.

For many years, my passion has always been music. I am piano and guitar player.I used to listen to only classical and country music From all the types of music I used to listen to, Racine is my favorite. Since I come across Boukman's music in 1990, listening to Bouman Eksperyans CD becomes my passion. Boukman Eksperyans is the only group that brings our cultural root alive and subsequently joins people together in their deeply inspirational and soulful types of songs. I am a big fan of Boukman and I congratulate Lolo and Manze for the outstading work they are doing for all those years. I hope that God can protect and help you with all your are doing.
