Haiti - Music : Passing of Samba Kessy
After the disappearance Tuesday of Black EZ, http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19456-haiti-flash-passing-of-black-ez-the-music-world-is-mourning.html it is the turn of King Kessy the singer of the group Koudyay to leave us prematurely.

"The Ministry of Culture salutes with great emotion the premature departure for the beyond of the composer-singer-interpreter of the group Koudjay, Jean Samuel Lubin aka 'Samba Kessy' 54 years, died Friday 9 December at 8.30 am at the Saint-Nicolas public hospital in Saint-Marc (Artibonite) following discomfort after a performance of his group in the city of Port-de-Paix.

The Haitian music industry has just lost one of the greatest Racine singers of all time.
During his life, the former singer of the Southern Group of Les Cayes , Samba Kessy has been the singer of the denouncement of the difficult conditions of the Haitian people. As a committed artist, several of his "méringues" have marked and will forever mark the Haitian people like : "Lakou Lakay" (Carnaval 1991), "Gran Manjè" (1997), "Bwa a mare" (Meringue de 1998), "Rat do kale" (1999), "Gran Gozye" (2001), "Chay la lou" (2003), "Esklav mantal" (2004), "Beton an pou nou 2" (2014) and "N’ap tan’n yo".



"The Ministry bows to the remains of this great singer and associates himself with this grief that strikes his family, the members of the Koudjay group, his fans and expresses to them all his sympathy and solidarity."
