Ou Chante Pwoblem-lan

Ou chante pwoblem-lan. (You sing the problem.)

"Haitian quake survivors sang to reconstitute themselves as individuals, and to reconstitute the groups--families, neighbors, congregations, and communities to which they belong." -- Elizabeth McAlister, Professor of Religion, "Soundscapes of Disaster and Humanitarianism: Survival Singing,  Relief Telethons, and the Haiti Earthquake"
