From newbies to diehards, under System Band, “tout moun jwenn”

To be sure, Haitian konpa group System Band was controversial. Its songs, while popular, made polite Haitian society blush. Even in the most thoughtful of songs, you can count on Douby to delve into the prohibitive zone. For example, in Epreuve, Douby chimes in “Talatane, ou mem ki sot an ro, saw wè.” That sexual innuendo breaks the seriousness out of the song while making others uncomfortable. In the words of Douby, “tout moun jwenn” — there was something for everyone.
