Proclaimed as “the priest of voodoo rock 'n’ roll” and described as “evoking an Afro-energised Black Keys meets Dr. John,” Moonlight Benjamin expresses the love and pride she carries for her homeland, Haiti, with an intense, high octane musical brew.
Born in Port au Prince in 1971 in tragic circumstances – her mother died in childbirth and Moonlight was taken into an orphanage – Moonlight moved to Toulouse in France in 2002 and has enjoyed an ongoing collaboration with Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and Guadeloupean saxophonist Jacques Schwarz Bart. Her latest album, Siltane has won effusive support from DJ Cerys Matthews and fRoots Magazine.
