This is the third cd in the series Lafimen: Listwa Pèp Ayisyen depi nan Ginen (History of the Africans of Haiti)

(1799 to January 1, 1804)

The opening piece “Toussaint Louverture ap dirije” covers the military rise and governance of the legendary leader of Saint-Domingue.  From the multitude of enslaved Africans who had arrived on the island from various lands and nations, speaking different languages and having known different military strategies and systems of governance, Louverture established and led a formidable army of freedom fighters.

Jafrikayiti leads us to discover Toussaint Louverture’s bold 1801 Constitution, which occasioned a feat of rage by Napoléon Bonaparte. The 3rd piece is titled: “Napoléon voye Leclerc nan dengonn Toussaint“.P1260461

High drama and captivating intrigue are ever present throughout the Haitian Revolution. From 1793 onward Toussaint and his army defeat Spanish, British and French enslavers, chasing them out of the island along with mulatto collaborators who threatened his power. In 1802, Toussaint is treacherously captured, kidnapped and deported to France.  All along, with Maten, his faithful donkey, Jafrikayiti travels with us through time, mountains, valleys and oceans to serve as invisible eye-witnesses to these mesmerizing historical events.

Rezistans“, a musical piece performed by Port-au-Prince street band “Patikoul“, aptly introduces each new chapter. Major figures (men and women) of the Haitian revolution are introduced in full action with pieces titled: “Dessalines ak Christophe refize trayi“, “Lyetnan Sanite Bélair” and “Mèsi Nèg ak Nègès Gwadloup”.

 The climatic piece “Vètyè Pòtay Libète“, recounts the epic battle won at Vertières (Northern Ayiti) by the Africans over Napoleon Bonaparte’s army. The leadership of fearless abolitionist Jean-Jacques Dessalines is well established on the Island of Liberty. With the declaration of independence of the abolitionist Republic of Haiti, on January 1, 1804, a new chapter of human history has began. Deemed anathema in the world of white enslavers, Dessalines’ name is cursed; His “Black Republic” feared and ostracized.

The CD closes with “Sa k ap fèt?”, a rap performance by KOB Records artist Lucifer. It also features Jafrikayiti who delivers a special message to Haitians of all generations.
