Haiti Direct: Out Now!

STRUT093_cover sm Literally years in the making, our Haiti Direct collection, compiled by Hugo Mendez of Sofrito, is out and available in stores. The two disc collection celebrates the overlooked musical legacy of Haiti, going beyond Ra-ra and voodoo stereotypes to trace the development of a unique sound that echoed across the Caribbean, yet remains relatively under the radar outside of the region.

Support from fans, press, and radio has been amazing, with BBC Radio 6 Music playlisting regularly, and the Sunday Times calling the collection “essential listening.”

Haiti Direct is available on 2xCD, 2xLP (with CD included), and digital download, and can be purchased from local music retailers, as well as iTunes, Amazon, and the Strut Store.

  1. Hello, Haiti Direct is absolutely great! Only to wish that the CD only tracks will be released on vinyl as Haiti Direct Volume 2… any chance?
    Kind regards
