(I was supposed to put myself here right?)

Phyllisia Ross

She sings in Kreyol (Haitian Creole) and English. Her sound feels like a cross between Aaliyah, Tamia and Kompa (Compas/traditional Haitian pop music). Very cool.

Riva Précil and Monvelyno form the duo BOHIO

Here they are @ Corner Social in NYC. Riva recently released “Se Bon”, as a solo artist. She also designs jewelry.

Mike Classic

Mike is definitely someone you should know but maybe don’t. He’s Haitian-American rapper (I know, not a singer), but I had to include him on this list.

De la Soul’s TruGoy the Dove

Okay, you’ve probably heard of him.
