Haiti - Culture : Tribute of Martelly to Azor
The Presidency bows before the remains of the singer and drummer eponymous, Lénord Fortuné aka Azor, who passed away on the night of July 16 to 17, 2011, to the Hospital Bernard Mevs, as he was returning from the festivities of Mont Carmel, to Saut-d'eau.

Haiti has lost one of the most popular virtuosos of traditional music of the past 50 years and a tireless ambassador of Haitian culture. With music voodoo as a backdrop, the group that he directed and which bears his name, Racine Mapou de Azor, toured the world and allowed everyone to discover the value of the music of lakous and of the Haitian identity.

It is thanks to him that this music, enclosed for a long time, is entered in the living rooms and has been enjoyed by millions of music lovers, Haitian and foreign.

The Presidency welcomes the courage and talent of Lénord Fortuné and sends its condolences to his family and all those who knew him and for which his music was a ritual of reassurance.
