Combine up-tempo Haitian vodou music, lyrics in Creole, French, and English, and a little rock ‘n’ roll, and you have mizik rasin, the bubbly stylistic backbone of Port-au-Prince-based band RAM. Together since 1990, RAM has been both a staple of the island’s dance scene and a resilient political voice, keeping the flames of both opposition and indigenous Haitian culture vividly alive.
