Haitian-American singer and composer Nathalie Joachim stopped by WNYC Studios in New York City as a guest on New Sounds’ Soundcheck, hosted by John Schaefer. She performed three songs from her new album, Ki moun ou ye—"Kenbe m," "Kouti yo," and the title track—and spoke with Schaefer about the album. You can hear the conversation and live set on the episode and watch the three performances below.

On Ki moun ou ye, 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.
