15-06-2018 12:00:00 15-06-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Michael Brun Presents Bayo | 7:00 PM MICHAEL BRUN In Haitian Creole, 'Bayo' means 'to give', which refers to both generosity in Haitian culture and the sense of duty that a new wave of Haitian musicians feel toward the country that they hope to represent on a global stage. Today, Michael Brun's Bayo conveys this uniquely Haitian concept. Bayo follows Michael's turn away from EDM to focus on a body of work inspired by his home land, which included Wherever I go and Gaya, which became certified hits in Haiti and amassed millions of play on Spotify. Like those, Bayo is rich with Haitian-cultural influences - Afrobeat, Rara, Konpa, Hip-hop, and Reggaeton beautifully weaved into Michael's own contemporary electronic style, resulting in a track that's distinctly Haitian but fits squarely in the current pop moment. Bayo is the sound of contemporary Haiti, featured on the record is Haitian pop sensation J. Perry, whose infectious voice makes the track shimmer, the king of Haitian Hip-hop Baky and rapper Strong G, who Brun discovered during a recording session on the small island of La Gonave, deliver powerful verses in traditional Haitian Creole. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=310427 Irving Plaza Irving Plaza
