Jowee Omicil on his voodoo-infused and Haitian slave revolution-inspired new album • FRANCE 24

Our guest on this week’s music show is jazz multi-instrumentalist Jowee Omicil, who spends much of his time between Paris, Miami and Montreal. He’s about to release a new album entitled “Spiritual Healing: Bwa Kayiman Freedom Suite”. The record is fully connected to his Haitian roots and represents a means to travel back in time to the slave revolution of 1791. We also discuss André 3000’s flute-heavy new album, and take a listen to new releases by hip-hop royalty Busta Rhymes and France’s Eddy De Pretto.
