Malou Beauvoir Interviewed by LENA MAY DUVAL 2022
Thank you @LenaMayDuval for this beautiful moment spent together talking about life, music, songwriting and Vodou. Un grand merci à...
Released on March 15, “The World is Crying” offers profound hope and spiritual healing for a world troubled by social issues, climate change and inequality.
Music and mission have always been tightly intertwined for Malou Beauvoir. On her last album, 2018’s Spiritwalker, the Haitian-American singer-songwriter at once celebrated the Vaudou spirits that embody and enrich the culture of Haiti and conveyed their message of peace and awakening to the world at large.
If the global challenges of the last few years have taught us anything, it’s the fact that humanity and the natural world have fallen woefully out of sync. On her gorgeous, moving new single “The World is Crying,” Haitian-American singer-songwriter MalouBeauvoirgives voice to the lamentations of the planet we call home.
In addition to being a stunning piece of music that finds hope from the tumult and pain of modern civilization, “The World is Crying” is also a living example of cross-cultural communication. The track was co-written by Beauvoir with Cameroonian singer and multi-instrumentalist Francis Mbe. Brazilian percussionist João Parahyba added his magic o the track. Together the trio finds harmony and beauty in their unique blend of influences, backgrounds and traditions. Silken guitars, plaintive and soulful voices, an uplifting chorus and sensitive, propulsive percussion create a truly spiritual musical experience.
