BélO has been hailed as Haiti’s musical ambassador to the world. A young, socially conscious singer-songwriter with a sophisticated sound, BélO and his band deliver a high-energy mix of jazz, worldbeat, rock, reggae and Afro-Haitian traditional rhythm known as Ragganga.
“BélO's versatile guitar work and slightly raspy, soulful voice have made a fan of me.” (Condé-Nast Traveler)
With its “focus on the essentials,” BélO’s new album, Haiti debout (Haiti Standing) is a “punchy, energetic cocktail served up in Creole.” (Radio France International)
