Hard Rock Café Santo Domingo announces the Friday, 14 May 2021 show of former Haitian President Michel Martelly (2011-2016). 60-year old Martelly is the creator of Kompa, a danceable genre. The show “Kompa Night” is part of the series of opening concerts at the Blue Mall night spot that recently reopened to the general public. This is a first time, Martelly will perform at a public place in the DR.
Known artistically as Sweet Micky, Martelly has several hit songs in Haiti, including Manvi Manjew, Decide ‘Ou, I Don’t Care, Pa Manyen Fanm Nan, Ou Fè Mwen Mal, Mon Colonel and Konfesyon.
Hard Rock Café says in a press release that Martelly’s musical transcendence allowed him to reach the presidency in his country in 2011. When he was elected President, however, as his passion is music, he never stopped performing, so when he left the presidency, he resumed his primary profession.
