Reposting this awesome Tabou Combo track since yesterday was Haitian Independence day and the original post was missing the audio. Shoutouts to our former DJ companero, Franz Tunda, who originally posted this back in 2010.
I love this track — it’s a looser and much longer version of Tabou Combo’s better known “Mabouyé”. You can imagine the crowds going bananas to this groove. Like a lot of great Haitian records from the 1970s, Soukoué Ko Ou was recorded in Brooklyn. Translated from Haitian creole, the title means “We’re in your care” or “We’re depending on you to care for us.”
