Haitian Legendary Singer Alan Cave Retiring?

According to Defend.ht:

It’s been a while since kompa fans had an Alan Cave album to groove to but the legendary artist of the HMI announced that his next album, is coming soon… it will be a double album, and the last full album of his stellar career. Cave said the album is, in fact, complete and is merely in its mixing stage. “Plak la fini… se mixe ke yap mixe,” he told Kompa! Magazine this week.

Cave is planning to market each one of his songs in the upcoming album with their own individual posters.


Georges Alan Cavé is a Haitian Kompa and Zouk singer and the lead of the group Zin. He was born on February 27, 1966 in New York City but spent most of his adolescent years in Haiti.

He toured with his father, Syto Cavé, all over the French Antilles, France and Canada. In 1987, he met with Alex Abellard and Eddy Saint-Vil to audition for the group Zin. Alex thought that he could not have that voice against him, so he quickly signed him. They released their first album, O Pa, in 1988 and are still going strong after 20 years.

Cavé has also had a very successful solo career and released 3 solo albums.
