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

(January 1, 1804 to October 17, 1806)

The opening piece “Tèt blan cho” sets the rise of Dessalines and Haiti’s declaration of independence in regional and international context.

With the 2nd piece titled “Ayiti Toma”, Jafrikayiti provides some fascinating insight on the naming of Ayiti (Hayti), a unique nation established by displaced Africans in the Americas.

The  pedagogical focus of this 4th cd is highlighted throughout its 23 pieces. Spreading the word about the existence of actual voice recordings of African women and men who were once enslaved in the United States of America, “Vwa Zansèt yo”  is a piece to treasure.

Kolon blan rekòlte…”, “Randevou 8 oktòb”, “Dessalines mete blan Angle nan wòl yo” and “Blan Franse menase Ayiti” are guaranteed to give you chills as Jafrikayiti narrates the events that marked the first year of existence of the Black Republic, within an ocean of slave-holding, white supremacist military powers.

“Opa Karabinye!” highlights the role music and entertainment played in the Haitian Revolution. We learn about Euphémie Darguil, a famous songstress who accompanied Dessalines and his troops on the battleground where Le Carrabinier, a new musical genre,  was born.

“Konstitisyon 1805” is an important study for anyone interested to understand the vision of Haiti’s founders. Despite the wealth of information it provides and the captivating stories it recounts, like the rule of Dessalines itself, you will find this cd to be too short-lived.  It closes with two dramatic pieces “Konplotay kont lanperè” and “Graslamizèrikòd! Yo touye Lanperè”.
