1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. April 2016 Canadian singer Mlissa Laveaux heads to Haiti her parents homeland. 20 years have gone by since she last stepped foot there. Here she is today still a stranger to a country that is very much an intricatepart of her identity. She discovers an extraordinary heritage: the folk songs that have bred and nourished Haitians artists for decades. Returning from Haiti with sounds melodies moods andstories of distant times upon which Mlissa built the musical backbone to Radyo Siwl. A re-interpretation sometimes from scraps sometimes from a few phrasesin a book from traditional tunes to vaudou anthems sewn together like a patchwork of intersecting identities. Draping them in her indie rock aesthetic percussive and sinuous guitars Mlissas voice booms and unfurls to give the music its distinct sound. The overall result benefitting from the surreal halo that the jacks-of-all-trade A. L. B. E. R. T. studio achieved to make way for these dark or light meditations enriched by the notable shining presence of Drew Gonsalves leading man and songwriter of Trinidadian band Kobo Town on guitar and quattro. Mlissa then reimagines a past that can only serve to open up a future of new possibilities. A fairytale still looking for its happy ending. Starting at the roots she chose the branches and leaves of the stories she best knew how to tell - piecing together an odd tree. It yields the little hog plums which endemic to Haiti siwl in creole.
