MALOU BEAUVOIR’S HAITIAN TRADITION, SPIRITUALITY AND EMPOWERMENT

DECEMBER 20, 2018 ANGEL ROMERO

Haitian-American vocalist, actress and songwriter Malou Beauvoir celebrates her Haitian roots and vodou in Spiritwalker. The album crosses over into solid world music territory with a superb fusion of Haitian rhythms and melodies, jazz, neo-soul, reggae, funk, Cuban influences and, on “Rasenbleman,” irresistible cutting edge electronic dance music.

Malou Beauvoir unveils spectacular "Papa Damballah" music video on Medium

NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, February 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com

In Haitian Vodou, there’s no Loa, or cosmic force, more central than Damballah. He’s the great snake: the creator deity who made the sky, the hills, the water, all living things and, finally, the human race. Damballah governs both mind and spirit, which makes him a natural patron for artists. Consequently, Damballah has been celebrated in dance, in visual art, and, quite often, in song. 

 

“Voodoo” as a term brings to mind New Orleans witches, animal sacrifices to raise the dead and other bogus representations of a serious spiritual following. With Spiritwalker, a wonderful mix of jazz, Haitian folk, hip-hop and dance music, Haitian-American singer-songwriter Malou Beauvoir goes a long way to setting the record straight about “Vaudou”. And you can dance to it!
