|PANIC ALERT...as this might come as some very sad news for Mizik Mizik fans at carnavals. This is what we got from FABRICE ROUZIER on WHY MIZIK MIZIK did NOT come out for carnaval this year.
FABRICE: "Mizik-Mizik has done 14 kanavals very succesfully, having won best meringue 4 times out of 14. Maybe enough is enough. I am sure that
even with no meringue of our own, you've somewhat felt our presence.
You'll hear from us when the new cd comes out.
The whole kanaval structure HAS to change. Every year, Mizik Mizik
provides the public with outstanding original and catchy tunes that
never fail to catch the public's ( and our fellow musician's ) ears
positively. I will be so bold as to say that we have had better songs
than most of the so called leading bands out there with better crowd
responses yet, we have failed to gather enough sponsor money year
after year. We have had to pool from our own resources to pay for the
extra expenses every year. Apre bal tanbou a toujou lou.
Except for maybe two or three fortunate bands or the government's "preferred" artists of the day, kanaval is a losing proposition for the rest of the musicians financially and logistically speaking. Everyone from the T-Shirts printers, the char builders and renters, the truck rentals, the sound companies, the video productors, the food vendors, the security personnels, the sponsors, the media outlets ( internet,radio, tv and newspapers ) make money but the main actors ( the
musicians ) consistently lose... How sick is that ?
