Tinès Salvant: IN CONCERT
Tinès Salvant’s career began in 1989 when he released his first album, “Kè m chavire" ("I am deeply in love"). He is known as “the charmer of all time”. One of his most popular songs is “Malere pa chen" (“Poor people are not worthless”). The subject matter of his music ranges from love & relationships to social issues of the day. His works are treasured in the Haitian musical industry. This great performance by Tinès Salvant was the second annual Haitian concert held by Haiti Lab at Duke University. Besides teaching Haitian Creole at Duke University, Mr. Jacques Pierre (co-director of Duke Haiti Lab) organizes different events such as, Haitian Film Series, International Creole Day, Panel on linguistic situation in Haiti, and so on to make Haiti more visible in the American academic window. Please enjoy the performance by Tinès Salvant. This event was coordinated by Mr. Pierre.
