â€śHi I have sign-up as USAhaitian,
I live in Miramar, Fl. born and raise in South Florida USA... this site is really interesting and a great research tool for the Haitian Music world.
I hope to become a member of the board that way I can express view points on recent events and issues occurring within the business of Haitian Music.
I enjoy listening to Nu-Look, 509, and System Band as in Haitian music, but not to limit Touch Kreyol, Krezi, and others that really show appreciation for arts in the culture of Compas Music from Haiti.
I wish that the site moderator reads and understand that kompamagazine has a huge impact on the music industry within the Haitian market, and accepting/allowing those interested to join on as members is a great part of expanding the message board worldwide.â€ť
Since the Fall of 2002, New York City, undergraduate student at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY, where my professor for Ethnic and Race inspired me to learn more about â€śAfrican Haitiansâ€ť, and what it meant to really be Haitian, not only speaking the language and having parents who were born in Haiti, but knowing the Haitian cultural and itâ€™s History throughout time including the USA: this is when I wrote my first ten page term paper as a freshman from Florida, â€śUnequal Treatment Against Haitian Asylum Seekersâ€ť, this two week period right before Thanksgiving Break spanned my life in gear towards a remarkable glance at not only being â€śBlackâ€ť but what it also meant to be Black and Haitian after the 60â€™s in America.
Now as a senior at Florida International University, returned back home, Iâ€™m pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice, with an interest in Law Enforcement, experienced work with Promotions-Marketing, and future plans in the legal arena as an Immigration Attorney: Iâ€™ve been active in the Haitian Community when possible and Iâ€™m lively a HMI supporter and dedicated fan; although, Iâ€™ve done some online Public Relations for Nu-Look I dream of becoming a famous PR and working with many more bands throughout.
Itâ€™s no secret that Kompamagazine and Patrick have changed lives, or may perhaps suggest altered people presumptions into really thinking and understanding what it seems to read carefully by taking notes. KompaMagazine has this ultimate power that brings confessions, improvements, and major controversial ideas with the Haitian Music Industry! As scary as it may really seem, many would not be and able to wake nor rest at ease without Kompamagazine: â€śwhatâ€™s up, where is the action, who said that, and why did they do thatâ€ť are common juice of gossip and serious discussions members invite; however, unlikely Kompamagazine have been the spot to â€śmake or brakeâ€ť individuals and groups among the HMI. For this I found it nearly worthy to be apart of this movement and speak out.
Currently, at this moment I consider myself a Kompamagazine member! I deem Patrick Desvarieux as a professional and historian for the Haitian Cultural worldwide. SO Hello Senior KM members and newbie in the making just as I had been, lol!
