19/05/2016Forgotten Treasures From Haiti

To promote a recent party in Montreal, Canada, the notorious MusicIsMySanctuary blog asked local staple Kobal, one of the city's most acclaimed and respected DJs and record collectors (and part of the Canicule Tropicale collective), to record a guest mix of forgotten Haitian gems, which he did. So without further ado, head over to Mixcloud for Kobal's "Haiti Legba Sound". You can find the tracklist below.
