As Forbes mentions, “Bayo” is what Haitian born artist Michael Brun‘s new music is all about. In Haitian Creole, the term is associated with generosity and a responsibility the country’s contemporary musicians have to give back and represent their culture on a global level.
With his latest music video drop last Friday of the same title as his musical concept, that’s exactly what the 25-year-old rising star is on his way to do. He’s switching gears from his EDM background and is focusing on tracks he has a greater personal connection to.
Through his music, he hopes to combat all the consistent negative misrepresentation of his native country and it’s safe to say, Michael Brun is off to an impressive start.
From the colorful dancing to the infectious melodies influenced by Haiti‘s traditional Rara music, you’ll instantly be hooked on the video’s visuals and unique sound.
Michael Brun also collaborated with Haitian pop star J. Perry along with the king of Haitian hip-hop Baky, and rapper Strong G who came through with strong verses in Haitian Creole.
It’s his specialty to bring all kinds of people together, which made him the perfect first non-jazz performer to close out this year’s 12th annual Port-au-Prince International Jazz Festival, also known as PAPJAZZ.
Right before his set last month, we chatted with Michael Brun about the inspiration that resulted in his one-of-a-kind sound and what we can expect from him next.
