Wyclef to Play Haiti

Former Fugee returns to his native country

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.
