Mach-Hommy Returns With New Album ‘#RICHAXXHAITIAN’

Mach-Hommy returns just ahead of Haitian Flag Day (May 18th) with his brand new album ‘#RICHAXXHAITIAN’.

The album channels Haiti’s troubled political revolution as well as its rich cultural inheritance, and concludes a tetralogy that the Haitian-American artist started with ‘H.B.O. (Haitian Body Odor)’ in 2017, and includes his Griselda Records release ‘Pray For Haiti’ as well as ‘Balens Cho (Hot Candles)’ both released in 2021.

‘#RICHAXXHAITIAN‘ intends to combat negative images of Haiti with its focus on the greatness of the country’s diaspora. Mach draws from a wide-range of musical influences and sounds as he presents a hopeful path toward a prosperous future for his homeland.

“I’ve always wanted to rep for Haiti and the cultural and intellectual richness we’ve provided the world,” says Mach. “From our musical styles like kontradans that have influenced world music, our natural resources which provide so much raw  material for so many important advancements in technology, our thinkers that  pioneered philosophical movements and Black pride, and our spiritual leaders who  kept the religious traditions of Guinea alive and intact, the religious traditions of Ayiti….” 

The most ambitious album to date from a prolific artist – who still maintains no social media presence and hides his face with a Haitian flag bandana, yet has released over 50 albums worth of material – ‘#RICHAXXHAITIAN‘ includes features from Roc Marciano, Black Thought, Your Old Droog, The God Fahim and 03 GREEDO, with beat production and curation from KAYTRANADA, Quelle Chris, Conductor Williams, Sadhu Gold and August Fanon.
