Announcing The Nominees For The 2018 Prestigious Haitian Music Awards

We are excited to announce the Prestigious HMA’s 2018 nominees. We are extremely fortunate to have experienced this wonderful opportunity to research and explore the various sounds of Haiti. Haitian artists have a unique ability when it comes to expressing their emotions through their songs. The variety of musical styles included in Haitian market is remarkable, from their unique creative lyrics and musical arrangements to their vocal capability that leaves you with no choice but to fall in love. Many are unaware of the various sounds that emerge from Haiti’s music which includes jazz, rock n roll, folk music, classical, punk rock and much more.

The musical selections offered to the public has made the nomination process difficult. We as a team came together with detailed criteria where each artist had the opportunity to delivered through their hard work throughout the year. Our committee includes the executive board, board of trustees and board of advisers.

The nominees were chosen between Sept 15, 2016, to Sept 15, 2017. These artists and bands were required to have produced within that time frame also required to promote their work to the public. Other components that played a significant role in the decision making were media presence, vocal ability, and production. There are many talents in the HMI, but at the same time being consistent and remaining relevant is extremely vital. We are here to not only expose the works of the artist but shine a light on the artist that have missed opportunities to become a household name.

Here are the nominees for the 2018 Prestigious Haitian Music Awards! Everyone has worked extremely hard to expose the beauty behind our country’s image musically.
