Boukman Eksperyans

Boukman Eksperyans ushered in a musical revolution during the late-'80s with their Grammy-nominated debut album, “Voudou Adjae.” This brilliant release introduced the world to Boukman's signature worldly high energy sound that fuses traditional Haitian and Caribbean rhythms with rock and reggae, all the while spreading their spiritual message. “Voudou Adjae” brought the band international prominence and made them spokespeople for the common Haitian.

Boukman take their name from a Vodou priest who helped to unify the Haitian slaves. The slave leader led the revolution against the French colonists which ended in 1804 with the former slaves victoriously forming the first Black republic in the world. Boukman Eksperyans spread their Vodou unifying spiritual message throughout the world with their artful blend of traditional Haitian rhythms with rock, reggae, and Caribbean sounds.
