James Germain

For years, James Germain has offered a universe at the confluence of its Afro-Caribbean roots. Born in Port Au Prince, he grew up on St. Anthony’s Hill, a popular area of the capital. James sings with a melancholic voice great traditional tunes of voodoo mixed with opera-going experiences or even gospel, reinventing codes. Haiti, it’s folk songs and Voodoo, lie at the heart of his work. His pieces range from classic music to African-Caribbean music. In that sense, it is a rich universe at the crossroads of several worlds. After a third album “Kréol Mandingue”, produced in Mali, James is preparing a new album that demonstrates his deep roots in Haitian culture and his constantly renewed strength to impose his voice to the world.
