Music = Medicine

posted by January 20th, 2010


Here’s a mix of great old school haitian records pulled from my crates. If you aren’t familiar with Kompa or other classic Hatian sounds, nows the perfect time to get schooled. There’s some great tunes on here that you probably won’t find anywhere else. Donate at least $5 to Partners In Health and forward me the confirmation email that you get and I’ll give you a link to download the whole mix (broken into separate tracks for your listening enjoyment). Forward your donation receipt to this address: charlie@mixtaperiot.com

PEACE

    Great project. I just gave because of it. Excited to hear the mix. And listening to it will keep Haiti in my mind after this initial burst of press coverage has faded away…

    Msr. Wild — we’ve already made a donation once to Partners in Health, but your mixtape has inspired me to donate again and encourage my friends. I can’t wait to donate again and come back for the download. Bravo !
