"When you speak to her, you can feel her excitement about the possibilities in music, the enthusiasm for the way music tells stories and how it connects us," NPR's World Cafe host Raina Douris says of her guest, Nathalie Joachim. They talk about her new album, Ki moun ou ye—which SPIN just named one of The Best Albums of 2024 (So Far)—and more, and Joachim performs four songs from it. You can watch it here.

"If you were to look at her resume, you might be intimidated by Nathalie Joachim," NPR's World Cafe host Raina Douris says of her guest. "But Nathalie is no stuffed-shirt snob when it comes to music. When you speak to her, you can feel her excitement about the possibilities in music, the enthusiasm for the way music tells stories and how it connects us." Joachim visited WXPN's studio in Philadelphia to talk with Douris about her new album, Ki moun ou ye, and more, and to perform four songs from it: the title track, "Renmen m plis," "Nan kò mwen," and "Kouti yo." You can hear their conversation and watch the performances below.

On Ki moun ou ye, Haitian-American singer and composer 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.

SPIN magazine just named Ki moun ou ye one of The Best Albums of 2024 (So Far), with Steve Hochman writing: "One of the year’s most creatively and personally ambitious albums becomes one of its most moving." You can get the album and hear it here.
