Why it take Haitian Bands so long to put an album out?

Published: Jul 17, 2012 by admin Filed under: Music
It takes a long time to make a great kompa album. I should also mention that more Kompa albums back then were completed in the studio in only a few takes. Less technology in the studio, less toys to play around with, meant shorter production times, so it wasn't a big deal for a Haitian band to go into the studio for two weeks in between gigs.

Fast forward to today, a ton of kompa bands take up to 3 years between studio albums. The main reason I've seen is because of touring in Haiti, France, Canada, the U.S and the Caribbeans and business models, and I would agree with that, but there are other reasons. 

Also, with the the internet. There's always a constant, small stream of hype from die-hard kompa fans eagerly anticipating a new album. These are the people that follow the band's posts on, and, and the like, and check back every day for any news, etc. Kompa Bands can take their time in the studio because they will never lose that hype (I'm talking to you Nu Look and Djakout).

To finish, for the most part, Haitian bands love their crafts and they will take their time to put a good product out there. We know how competitive the Haitian Music Industry is, If you put a sub-par album in the street you are as good as grass......simply
