Karlex Antoine has been called “the Bob Marley of Haiti” because of his bold and impassioned brand of ethno musicality. Poetic lyrics and infectious hooks have always infused the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter’s compositions, turning regional music styles into universal anthems. For Karlex’s latest, Paris - New York - Port Au Prince
(Lil' People Records), he liberates himself stylistically and truly explores what it is to write world music—music from the whole world, for the whole world.
