Hailed as Haiti’s musical ambassador to the world, and an outspoken groove innovator, BélO’s remarkable voice and dynamic live performances powerfully connect the music of his native island to the vibrant Parisian Afro-global music scene. A young, socially conscious singer-songwriter, BélO and his five-piece band deliver a high-energy mix of jazz, worldbeat, rock, R&B, reggae and Afro-Haitian traditional rhythm known as Ragganga that is sure to get you on your feet dancing and singing along.
“His mix of reggae with jazz and slicker pop has made him a star both at home and in Europe.”
New York Daily News
