Carnaval Is Here!

Carnival kicked off in Haiti today, one day earlier than usual so that the festivities will be for 4 instead of the usual 3 days!
There's tons of goodies on YouTube but I curated Kreyòl La's 2007 carnival song for you because they are featured in today's early kickoff on the Champ-de-Mars. Enjoy! NYC will hopefully get to hear it on the parkway on Labor day.

You can also watch the festivities live at Sakapfet.com starting Sunday Feb. 18 and check out Karlito's excellent preview of this year's festivities.

Update 2/18: Note that the official carnival site features all 24 carnival songs.

Update 2 on 2/18: Looks like Archivex Haiti is aggregating Carnival blogs and news. Sadly, no RSS or Atom feed!
