The Lakou Mizik website will be a hub for music discovery and a marketplace for Haitian musicians to promote and sell their music to a worldwide audience. It is our goal to provide a platform for these musicians to support themselves and build vibrant communities, and for international audiences to invest in Haiti, using music to build bridges from one corner of the world to another, and creating.
Each musician’s story will also be paired with an advocacy piece, highlighting a specific issue that people in their community struggle against. The community will present local solutions and efforts that are working. Each piece taken together as a whole will provide a holistic and systemic picture of the real Haiti, her challenges, opportunities, and successes. We will provide opportunities for our audiences to support these initiatives through donation, participation, or direct action.
