Boukman Eksperyans


Haiti’s internationally acclaimed mizik rasin (roots music) stars may soon release an intriguingly titled new album, La Révolte des Zombies, which either plays off of—or into—your favorite received ideas about the sad little country. While Boukman has never quite recaptured its early-’90s popularity, it remains a ten-piece juggernaut specializing in vodoun-inspired rara rhythms, politically charged chants, and Gerald Alfred’s Hendrixian guitar. With Tiga.
