Vocalist Pauline Jean Releases New Video "Their Blood, Bondye" In Support Of Artists In Her Native Country Haiti
(Published: October 29, 2016)

Celebrated Haitian-American vocalist and composer Pauline Jean is releasing the video premiere for
Their Blood, Bondye http://bit.ly/Jean_TBB, from her sophomore album NWAYO. The audiovisual presentation was produced in collaboration with filmmaker Theodora Johnson (Africology Media), to draw attention to the countless individuals in Haiti who have been impacted by Hurricane Matthew, and to raise funds for some of the many distressed musicians within one of the country's worst affected areas, Jeremie.

On her latest album entitled NWAYO (pronounced n-wah-yo), Jean collaborated with the award-winning author Edwidge Danticat, by setting music to her poem Their Blood, Bondye. The song is a dedication in the form of a prayer to their ancestors and the people of Haiti, who have endured tremendous suffering and loss, yet have shown great strength, courage and pride. The recording also provides other cultural and historical perspectives through pieces such as Igbo Landing, which offers a soulful tribute to the ancestors of the Middle Passage.

All proceeds from the sales of Their Blood, Bondye http://bit.ly/NWAYO will be donated to the Jeremie Disaster Relief Fund. Monies will be channeled through the Haiti Jazz Foundation Inc. USA 501(c)(3); direct contributions to the Foundation can be made by visiting: http://papjazzhaiti.org/site/en/donations/
