Konpa Mix Radio was created as a medium to share with the rest of the world my passion for Konpa and at the same time helping promoting this musical Genre which is native of Haiti. The genre was developed by Nemours Jean Baptiste, a Haitian jazz artist who was inspired by the musical stylings of the Dominican Republic & Cuba and originally spelled COMPAS. Today most people spell it Konpa or Kompa. From the begining Nemours Jean Baptiste incorporated traditional Haitian sounds and rhythms into a lively musical style which incorporated a lot of brass and easily recognized rhythms.

Konpa music is typically accompanied with singing in Haitian Creole. Like jazz, this music pays homage to the African roots of Haitian culture, but takes those roots in a whole new direction. The word “compás” as originally spelled in Spanish means “beat” or “rhythm,” and one of the most distinctive characteristics of compás music is the driving beat, a trait common to many styles of Caribbean music. Konpa is easy and fun to dance to, It incorporates musical traditions like Merengue, which propel dancers around the floor with lively, active beats.
