A street view of Port-au-Prince during the gas strike on Monday, February 9, 2015. New rounds of transportations strikes have cripples Port-au-Prince yet again. People are protesting gas prices which are high despite despite low gas prices on the international market. This new round of strikes has been announced to show dissatisfaction with the Haitian government’s 20 Gourde decrease announced last week after the initial gas strikes. This time, I’ve decided to go out into the streets to take a look at how things were going.

HaitiXchange Digital Media presents artist J-Vens, and his hit “Ti Mamoun” which has taken Haiti by storm. A bona-fide street hit, a ‘Ti-Mamoun’ is the embodiment of a young modern gold-digger, who uses “love” for only what she can gain. With a very catchy hook, lately you can barely go to a street party in Haiti without hearing this song. A DJ favorite, J-Vens has taken advantage of the video to also introduce the Ti-Mamoun dance, which has gained popularity alongside the song. Enjoy!
