The Haitian Christian community portrays Compas music as the devil's music, Why?

Angeline - August 10 2017, 9:36 AM

I also would like to understand why the Haitian Christian community portrays Compas music as the devil's music?

For one, God is the one who bestowed the artists with the talent to do musics (all types of musics)

My husband is a music producer and a compas band owner, and many of my family members are against our relationship because he is a musician.

They claim he's not a good man since he is doing the devil's work by playing compas.

There's a bad stigma to compas in the eyes of religious people and I think it's because people drink alcohol and dance provocatively when they are listening to compas.
