“Like other Haitian artists of her generation, Michel marries social and political content to the distinctive, danceable Afro-Caribbean rhythms of Haitian traditional music, including the Haitian original compas, the troubador-style twoubadou, and the Afro-Haitian festival style of music known as rara. “Everybody knows that Haiti is in trouble,” she says. As a Haitian living abroad, Michel uses her music “to show a side of Haitian culture that is positive.”
