Haitian-American singer and composer Nathalie Joachim took part in an event at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City last night titled Creole Histories with novelist Edwidge Danticat and poet Canisia Lubrin, in which Joachim shared stories and songs from her new album, Ki moun ou ye. Prior to the event, she had curated a Spotify playlist for MoMA of songs that connect to the creation of the album, with music by Björk, Cécile McLorin Salvant, and others. You can hear it here:

On Ki moun ou ye, Nathalie Joachim takes listeners through an intimate collection of music that ponders its title’s question: “Who are you?” Inspired by the remote Caribbean farmland that her family continues to call home after seven generations and performed in both English and Haitian Creole, the work examines the richness of one’s voice—an instrument that brings with it DNA, ancestry, and identity—in a vibrant tapestry of Joachim’s voice, and intricately sampled vocal textures underscored by an acoustic instrumental ensemble. You can hear it and get it here.

Joachim gives the West Coast premiere of Ki moun ou ye on March 7 and returns to the East Coast to perform it at Carnegie Hall's Resnick Education Center on March 15 and Crystal Ballroom at the Somerville Theatre outside Boston on March 20. Details at nonesuch.com/on-tour.
