Wyclef to Play Haiti

Former Fugee returns to his native country

July 22, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Though Wyclef grew up in Brooklyn, New York, the former Fugee was born in Croix-des-Bouquets in Haiti in 1972. Throughout his career, he's done benefits to aid the troubled Caribbean nation. According to reports, Wyclef has also recorded a new semi-autobiographical concept album in the country's native tongue, Sak Pase Presents Creole 101 (Welcome to Haiti) for Canada's Vik Recordings.

Though Jean hasn't offered many additional details about the concert, he's hoping to provide relief for the country, which has grown more volatile since the ouster of former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide earlier this year by rebels.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
