This post presents ten videos of songs from the Haitian carnival that was held on March 2, 3, and 4th, 2014. These videos are just a small sample of the numerous Haitian kanaval 2014 songs that were posted on YouTube.
I selected these examples from the Haitian carnival 2014 that I watched* because they met my aesthetic taste for sound, beat, and video content. Unfortunately, I don't speak or read Haitian Creole, the language I think was used for these songs, their titles, the publisher's summaries and most of their viewers' comments. Consequently, I don't know what is being sung. I hope that it's something good. :o)
* I viewed & listened to about 25 videos, but this website that I found listed 65 Haitian carnival 2014 songs: http://haitianmyspace.com/index.php?view=display&id=219&option=com_music. That website also listed the number of times that the songs were downloaded. I didn't do a thorough check to verify that all of the songs featured in this pancocojams post are included in that list, but I assume that they are.
http://www.haitiopen.com/haiti-news/haiti-carnival-2014/ indicates that "Music is one of the most important ingredients of the Haiti Kanaval. Musicians generally engage in a wide range of genres, including Haitian rap, zouk, Compas music, and mizik rasin." [snip] I'm not sure about what the music genres are for the examples that are featured in this post. I would appreciate learning any information about these songs and their performers.
