Day 16 – Max Aubin – from ‘Konkou Chante Nwel 1998’

Language – Haitian Creole

A lovely song for today, from a Christmas-time singing competition in Haiti called ‘Konkou Chante Nwel’. This is Max Aubin, and he came second that year (1998). I can’t find out what this song is actually called – any help gratefully received!

“Children are celebrating
That way they are accustomed
Whether poor or rich
They all have the same desire
To play, to sing nice music
for Christmas.”

Lyrics are underneath the video on YouTube 🙂
