VOX SAMBOU

 


Vox Sambou is originally from Limbé, Haiti, and he is a founding member of the group Nomadic Massive, with whom he has toured Canada and performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, in Los Angeles Grand Performances, at the Printemps de Bourges in France, as well as in the Caribbean and Latin America, France, Chile, Brasil, Senegal, Mali and Burkina Faso.

As a songwriter, he recorded Lakay in 2008, Dyasporafriken in April 2013 and The Brasil Session in 2016.

Vox Sambou is a committed musician who is not afraid to denounce injustice, social imbalances and inequities.

Vox Sambou is crucially involved in the achievement of educational and community projects based in Limbé, Haiti. He is a founding member of Solid’Ayiti, an artists and activists initiative working for a long-term solidarity between Montreal and movements fighting for social justice in Haiti, according to the principles of self-sufficiency, education, decentralization and reforestation.

He holds a BA in Psychology and Anthropology and has been directing for more than 10 years now, The Youth House of the Côte-des-Neiges, a non-profit organization whose mandate is to prevent delinquency among teenagers in the district of Montreal’s Côte-des Neiges.

Educating through Art is equivalent of educating through life. 

 
“The showcase of the Montreal-based MC Vox Sambou, a key figure of the rap kreyòl movement, was both explosive and entertaining. This sharp-witted lyricist and charismatic showman presented a vibrant hip-hop fusion, mixing up his Haitian roots with reggae, Afrobeat, Latin music, and danceable jazz. Vox Sambou’s boundless energy on stage with his six-piece band easily won over the crowd, making him one of the highlights of Visa For Music.”

“Vox Sambou: One of five musical acts to watch in 2015.”

“This video (Blacktitude) builds on a trajectory of socially-conscious, contemporary hip-hop that has established Sambou as a key figure on the progressive front of the Rap Kreyòl movement.”
