MOONLIGHT BENJAMIN ROCK VAUDOU
Local event , Concert , Night outings , Show at Pennautier
- Sometimes you don't have to go to the other side of the planet to find the most explosive musical fusions. Established for fifteen years in the Toulouse region, the Haitian singer Moonlight Benjamin has already come a long way, collaborating with the Cuban pianist Omar Sosa or the Caribbean jazzman Jacques Schwarz-Bart. But his third album, Siltane, released in 2018, made everyone agree far beyond our borders. She immerses the whole Haitian voodoo tradition in a bubbling pot of American blues rock from the 70s. Yet unexpected, the meeting turns to evidence. The powerful chest of Moonlight Benjamin floats on guitar riffs worthy of the Black Keys like a shamanic spirit. A haughty port and a proud look, she sings the mystical character of this island of a thousand sufferings, which was also the first free black republic. Invoking his fellow poets like Frankétienne and Georges Castera, the true voodoo priestess - she was initiated in 2009 - offers Haiti a shattering entry into the world jukebox.
