2015 Haiti Kanaval United In Happiness And Pain [Pictures & Video]


Saturday morning when I landed in Haiti for my very first Kanaval experience, I posted pictures and videos on my instagram page to share the experience with all my fellow Haitian Americans who couldn’t make it to Haiti for the annual event.

Like any other Carnival spelled Kanaval in creole, safety is always a concern,  but as I pulled up to the city of Champ des Mars on Sunday night to make my way to Carel’s Plezikanaval stand which was covering all the ins and outs of the the three day event, hundreds of armed police officers, security and emergency rescue teams standing throughout the ares definitely made me feel secure and ready to partake in all the excitement of Kanaval.

Shakur penned a track titled “Against All Odds”, where he name-drops several of his adversaries including Nas, Mobb Deep, Jimmy Henchman, and Haitian Jack, real name Jacques Agnant.
