Wesli: Melding Haitian Streets Sounds, Ritual Vibes, Reggae Rebellion
Since stringing his first oilcan for a guitar, musician-songwriter Wesli took seemingly disparate elements, and tinkered til they powerfully grooved. Wesli takes Haitian traditions (vodou), street styles (rara), and links them with everything from reggae to Afrobeat to hip hop. Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, he has grown into his role as a prolific songwriter, guitarist and producer, winning awards and fans along the way. Wesli’s unstoppable creativity led to signing with Cumbancha Records, and touring North America, Haiti, Colombia, Brazil, Europe, Africa and Asia. He runs a music school in Haiti.
