RAM is Haiti’s legendary voudou rock n roots band. Bandleader Richard Morse returned to Haiti in 1987 to run the historic Oloffson Hotel. The folkloric dance troupe Morse hired for the hotel became the base of his new band, which grew to combining elements of voudou and American rock and roll. Earlier this year, the band released their first studio album in 10 years, the triumphant RAM 6
When Haitian bluesman Paul Beaubrun covers Jimi Hendrix' classic Voodoo Child, he isn't kidding! The son of Lolo and Manze Beaubrun, founders of the legendary Boukman Eksperyans, Paul has grown up surrounded by rasin muzik. Now based in NYC, the guitarist and singer is making waves including a recent spot supporting Lauryn Hill.
