Haitians are addicted to Football/Soccer and for all Haitian soccer fans out there, read this... This World Cup 2014, ESPN will be using Haitian song "DEKOLE" by J. Perry during their coverage of the soccer games...

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil - J. Perry DEKOLE

So like said it when they broke the story... When watching the World Cup on ESPN this summer, don't doubt your ears if you thought you heard 'Dékolé' playing on your TV, because Haiti's very own Jonathan Perry, also known as J Perry, was requested the rights to have the song be part of the ESPN World Cup in Bresil rotation from June 1 to September 30.

That's right my friend... ESPN wrote Baoli Records in request to the CREOLE and Portuguese version of Dekole featuring Claudia Leitte.

They just take our music change the beat of the drum and the call it their own it's really

That is great news for both Haiti and J Perry.

I only hope that he gets paid for his art. There is a miriad of artistic expressions that can be exported or exploited by the rest of the world from Haiti and it's diaspora if you know where to look.

For example, I recently discovered the album of Ralph Conde where he put together some instrumental konpa music.
