Hard Rock Café Santo Domingo is the stage chosen by Michel Martelly, former president of Haiti (2011 – 2016), to offer his great concert called Kompa Night, next Friday, May 14, under the highest anti covid 19 standards and keeping the corresponding protocols of social distancing.
Known artistically as Sweet Micky, Martelly is one of the most transcendent Haitian artists in the culture of his country, thanks to his successes in the collective popular imagination, as his songs are already standards of the country’s culture.
His career has been one of the most prolific, as evidenced by such notable hits as Manvi Manjew, Decide ‘Ou, I Don’t Care, Pa Manyen Fanm Nan, Ou Fè Mwen Mal, Mon Colonel and Konfesyon, which will surely be played during the concert he will offer next Friday night.
His musical transcendence allowed him to reach the first magistracy of his country in 2011 when he was elected president, however, as his passion is music, he never left it, nor stopped playing it, so that when he left the government palace, he resumed his primary profession and with his songs continued to nurture the cultural heritage of Haiti.
At sixty years of age, we will see a Michel Martelly Sweet Micky, giving it all in his first presentation at Hard Rock Café Santo Domingo where great friends of his, members of the Haitian high society, as well as important figures of the neighboring country residing on this side of the island are expected to gather.
The anti Covid 19 protocols for this concert establish the mandatory use of masks, temperature measurement at the door, hand disinfection upon entry and upon arrival each person will be placed at their corresponding table by the designated protocol personnel, in order to avoid crowds.
