Paul Beaubrun joins host Alex Lewis

Paul Beaubrun was born into the legendary musical family behind Boukman Eksperyans, one of Haiti’s most famous bands. But he’s also made a name for himself as a solo artist in North America, thanks in part to collaborations with artists including Jackson Browne, Jenny Lewis, and Arcade Fire. Paul’s music is steeped in the sounds of rock and reggae and punctuated with Haitian drums and rhythms. Today, we’ll hear songs from his latest album, Rasanbleman, performed live.
