Nomadic Wax set to release Democracy in Haiti Mixtape
The company that brought you Diaspora: A Global Mixtape Movement, Nomadic Wax is back again with their latest release, the Democracy in Haiti Mixtape.
Serving as the sister project to the upcoming Nomadic Wax documentary film, “Democracy in Haiti,” the Democracy in Haiti Mixtape highlights the political, cultural and social issues facing Haitian youth after the earthquake that struck the country in January 2010. The third film in the “Democracy In…” series, “Democracy in Haiti” presents to audiences Haitian youth who have been active in the rebuilding of their country. In Haiti the youth make up the largest percentage of the population, yet, their voice is often ignored in discussions of political importance. Serving as an outlet for Haitian youth to bring forth their voice, “Democracy in Haiti” spotlights several young artists who have taken active roles in the reformation of Haiti’s cultural and political stature. Lena Jackson, the Nomadic Wax Director of Photography for the “Democracy in Haiti” film, recently returned to the country to document the events of the second round presidential elections and further capture the voice of Haitian youth on film. “Democracy in Haiti” helps audiences understand the important role Haitian youth must play in the foundation of Haiti’s political and social future.
Featuring talent from Haiti and the Haitian Diaspora around the world, the Democracy in Haiti Mixtape brings together a diverse group of hip-hop artists contributing verses that emphasize the socio-political issues currently facing Haitian society. As the audio backdrop to the “Democracy in Haiti” film, the Democracy in Haiti Mixtape encourages Haitian youth to stand up and take part in the successful rebuilding of their nation’s society.
The Democracy in Haiti Mixtape is mixed by DJ Nio of Zero Plastica and produced by Magee McIlvaine of Nomadic Wax, Vox Sambou and DJ Nio. The mixtape was mastered by Dan Cantor of Notable Productions.
