"I think "RAM" is the best group of haitian music i've ever heard. I would really like to tell others that their music can make you learn a lot of about yourself and can help you make changes in your life. I would really like to tell them to keep up the good work, and good luck in their next album. A real fan glaphira desir"
So THAT'S Haitian Music! (sort of)

"Fans of world music will certainly find this a both satisfying and curious treat. After a crack at the music business with a New Wave band in the 1980's, American Richard Morse, returns to settle in his mother's turbulent homeland. There he formed RAM, combining his lyrics, sung primarily in English, with Caribbean song forms. Featuring voodou drumming, this cross-cultural brew creates a sound that brings to mind the pop music of western Africa, with its call and response vocals, delicate chiming guitars, and layers of beautiful purcussion. The songs speak of the unrest of daily life in Port au Prince, as well as the universal knotty problems of male/female relationships."
