    Default Ever Heard of Haitian Jazz?

    Haitian Jazz is a fusion of Haitian music and American Jazz. Furthermore, Haitian Jazz may be divided into two sub categories:

    1) One consisting of Haitian Vodou/Roots music and Jazz, and

    2) Another fusing Konpa (Haiti's popular music) and American Jazz.

    Listen to these tracks:


    the following is a fusion of Jazz and Konpa using All Blues from Miles's Kinda Blue.
