"Their infectious, indigenous rhythms have been rocking audiences from Japan to Panama, Paris to Miami for more than three decades. They are the original ambassadors of Haitian music, having played almost every major world festival, taking compas music where Celia Cruz took salsa."

"Tabou Combo's music, like modern West African pop, involves a constant intertwining of guitar lines - melody upon melody - and vocals, punctuated by horn interjections and riding on detached but buoyant percussion parts. Its basic rhythm seems to float along but imperceptibly teases listeners into motion."

-- NY Times

A Few Memorable Performances

"Not many bands even make it to one decade. But Tabou Combo, the Rolling Stones of Haitian konpa, have been rocking a deep Caribbean groove for 44 years. They’ve adapted disco, funk and hip-hop to their now-classic konpa sound, sung out on AIDS, the travails of immigration, the earthquake — and the perpetual appeal of dance and the opposite sex."

-- Miami Herald, 04/2012
