Day 12: Musical Advent Calendar 2018

Artist: Man Mawgrit’
Title: Nwèl Wélélé
Language: French / Creole (Man Mawgrit is from the Antilles)
Translation: ‘Nwèl’ is the Haitian Creole word for Christmas…not sure what ‘Wélélé’ means

I think spending Christmas in the Caribbean would be a great experience, and so very different from the UK. This insanely cheery music is Zouk, also known as Kompa / compas in the French Antilles, which originates from Guadeloupe and Martinique. This track is so full of life and joy – perfect for Christmas! Man Mawgrit’ is known as ‘La mamie des Antilles’ – the granny of the West Indies 🙂
