Haitian Pop Artist Natalie Jean New Album ‘Haiti Mwen Renmenw’

Natalie Jean is an award winning, multi-nominated singer/songwriter performer. Jean is the definition of a versatile performer and singer. Jean sings many genres, such as Jazz Pop, R&B, Blues, and Dance. Jean is talented in singing in different languages such as French, Spanish, English, and Creole. Jean recently was nominated for Female Vocalist and Mainstream Artist in the 2017 Artist Music Guild Awards. Check out her announcement via facebook.

The songs are listed as:
1. Se Kanaval
2. Smoking Ke Fan
3. An Selebre Papa Dambalah
4. La Pe
5. Lan Nuit Nou Tounin Lougarou
6. Endepandans
7. Saut Deau
8. Marabou
9. Haiti
10. L’Amour A L’Infini

Jean’s new album “Haiti Mwen Renmenw” was released on July 14th, 2017. Which are 10 songs all inspired by her native culture of Haiti.

I will be describing my take on each song base on Jean’s hashtags on her soundcloud as well as what I researched.

The first song Se Kanaval it is an upbeat tune that makes you want to get up and dance. The Caribbean is big on celebration and in different countries carnival is a huge event of life.

The second song Smoking Ke Fan is not as upbeat as the previous song. Jean gives you a different vibe with this song.

The third song I found very interesting. I of course had to look up who is Papa Dambalah. Damballah (often seen spelled with two l’s) is an African Voodoo God. From my research he is depicted as a serpent or a snake. He is known along with his wife the rainbow goddess to bring life into tension and balance. If you are interested in learning more about Damballah Google is a great place to start.

The fourth song La Pe is smoothing. It means peace. I am sure Jean is referencing peace in the world base on her hashtags she used on soundcloud describing each song.

The fifth song Lan Nuit Nou Tounin Lougarou translates to Our night we worship werewolf.

The sixth song Endepandans is about Haitian independence. What is not more to love about celebrating the independence of the first country to abolish slavery in the Western hemisphere?

The seventh song Saut Deau is a modern méringue known as kompa which is dance music. Saut Deau means waterfall in french. It is a commune located in Haiti. The commune is named after a large waterfall in Haiti called ‘LE Saut’. Jean brings a soft

The eighth song ‘Marabou’ sounds like a love song to me. It brings a peaceful vibe when you are listening to it. You hear the conviction in Jean’s vocals. IT allows you to hear her range as she goes from upbeat songs to a slower tempo. What I discovered the meaning of Marabou in Haiti means multiracial. I also researched that it is a large African stork. Whatever the meaning it is a beautiful song. Jean describe the song on soundcloud as “The beauty of the Marabou.”

The ninth song ‘Haiti’ is a song about Haiti of course.

The final song ‘L’Amour A L’Infini‘ It translates into ‘The Infinite Love.’ Jean captions the song as “the love of your life.” This is another song that displays conviction and the passion of having infinite love. This is one of my favorite songs so far on the album.

Black Note Graffiti New Rock LP ‘Volume II’ & Single ‘Such Is Art’

It’s a tough time to be a rock band. The EDM craze and rap takeover these last few years have essentially replaced the guitar-based sound in the popular ear. With “Such Is Art”, off their recent sophomore LP Volume II, Black Note Graffiti make a spirited and compelling case for the enduring relevance of these sounds.

The track is immediately striking because of how good it sounds. Working with talented producers has given the promising musicianship previously displayed by the band an extra push, upping the sound quality and the appeal to match their ambition. The mix is clean and without wasted space, each sonic element placed for maximum clarity and impact, creating a swelling and propulsive whole. Everything’s been tightened up, it’s ready for primetime.

Yet despite its mainstream leanings, this song retains enough darkness to satisfy the cynics. Being about the demise of a relationship, the lyrics are relatable without being generic. At turns sweetly sad and troublingly rageful, it’s really sold by Ricardo Ortiz’s unhinged vocal take. His shapeshifting voice ranges all over the spectrum of hard rock vocal styles, arriving most affectingly during the choruses at a hoarse intensity distorted by passion. Combined with the whisper that whirls around the verses, and lyrics like “who do you think you are / to leave without a scar”, the atmosphere is genuinely menacing.

Survival in the face of competition sometimes means consolidation. Black Note Graffiti might just be hard rock’s saving grace. Combining elements from the diversity of hard rock styles into something unified, then giving it a sweet sheen for wide appeal: that’s how you build something noteworthy. “Share your haunting melodies, I’ll just ask for more” sings Ortiz; he might as well be speaking for us listeners.
