Music in Haiti

Music has a way of getting into your soul. We can study songs, pick apart riffs and tracks, try to define what we like and don’t like, but when we are right in the middle of a song, a good one, it has a way of just reaching up inside of us and moving our hearts.

I was in Northwest Haiti in the beginning of January, helping out at a special needs orphanage called the Miriam Center. Just before lunchtime every day, a blind man was lead in by his son. He sat down in front of a whole crowd of kids with special needs, picked up his guitar and played and sang to them. Each time he played, the whole room changed. Like flicking on a switch, energy flowed over everybody. The right rhythm with a simple song pulled everyone together and made us all that much more happy because of it. This is the incredible thing about experiencing music together; it’s like a little bit more life is poured out into the air and we all share in it.

I know this sounds a little sappy or existential, but if you have ever been at a show and you and everyone around you have just been grabbed hold of by a song, then you know what I am talking about.

Music has a way of getting into your soul. I am grateful to all those amazing kids at the Miriam Center in Northwest Haiti for reminding me of what makes music so precious.
