Singer BelO, inspired by his roots in Haiti – DailyHerald.com


“I started to tour internationally, more than in Haiti, and I made a lot of exchanges with different musicians from around the world,” he says. “My music has become more sophisticated.” But for him, “inspiration comes from my country first.” The Haitian Creole phrase “Natif Natal” — which might be translated as “Native Born” — emphasizes that bond with his homeland.

“Natif Natal” releases this month on the artist’s own label, BelO Music. It will be available Tuesday on iTunes.

Born in Croix-des-Bouquets, near Port-au-Prince, in 1979, BelO (real name, Jean Belony Murat) was only 11 when he realized he wanted to be a professional musician. His environment might have predisposed him to the choice. “Music was all over the house; all over the street; all over Haiti,” he recalls. via – DailyHerald.com
