Half a decade ago, three friends, who had worked together in some arena of music, almost simultaneously made the decision to further their education. Knowing that the state of their homeland, Haiti, was unsure and insecure, Carlo Vieux, Richard Cavé, and Mickael Guirand each decided to leave and set their sites on the United States. Always driven by their passion for music, this small group of guys reunited in New York to touch upon making their current past time a potential career.
Soon they found themselves surrounded by sound proofing foam, extended boom mics and a mixing board. To their surprise each had the same desire to pursue music and by taking the first two letters of their first names, CaRiMi was born. Drowning themselves in the studio in the hopes of creating a new sound, one that was uncommon in the Haitian Music Industry at the time, the guys found themselves putting to paper some profound, socially charged lyrics that encompassed the troubles in their native land. “Ayiti Bang, Bang” was released in the summer of 2001. Instantly, CaRiMi became a household name. They are known as one of the first younger generation digital bands to put out music that touched upon the political pressures and the deteriorating security of Haiti. They had mass appeal to the Haitian Diaspora who fled the country and through their allure lyrically, musically and of course physically as eye candy for the ladies, CaRiMi has thrived throughout the years.
Receiving accolades from the International music scene, including Best Album Of The Year, CaRiMi has risen to the top of the charts across Billboards best in Haiti, Guadeloupe, Paris, Guyanne Francaise, Canada and parts of Europe.
Be it with a love story of betrayal or desire being sung by Richard Cave, a song about jealousy and possessiveness vocalized by lead singer Mickael Guirand, a passionate dedication to loyalty harmonically displayed by Carl Vieux, a deep felt note composed by Noldy, a tap of the snare drum by Stanley, or a melodic groove off Glenny's strings, this dynamic cluster, has proven that talent is not only a gift but a necessity in making all your dreams a reality.
