On Saturday, February 25th, J.Perry will be joining Reggae superstar, Koffee, plus one of the most popular afrobeats artists, Tekno, and Cuban legend, Jacob Forever, on the stage for the Afro-Carib Festival in Miramar, Florida.
J. Perry, a hit creator from Haiti, has established himself at the top of the local music charts. With the Haitian song of the decade, “Dekole,” which broke local airtime records and served as the inspiration for the 2012 Haitian carnival’s theme song, “Ayiti ap Dekole,” the supernatural songsmith catapulted Haitian music onto the global scene.
Dekole traveled outside of the small island country, with Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte performing a remix featuring J.Perry. His track “Boujé” with Admiral T is a favorite on the club scene for its high energy and contagious rhythms.
J.Perry’s lyrics touch on everything from having a good time to the struggles many Haitians face due to widespread economic strife. His music is lively, energetic and poignant, often earning comparisons to Trinidadian soca megastar, Kes.
The Haitian and wider Caribbean American communities are encouraged to come support and be entertained by J.Perry and other Caribbean acts at this Saturday’s third annual Afro-Carib Festival in Miramar.
