About the band
Carimi is a kompa band from Haiti, founded on 20 July 2001. It is made up of three members: Carlo Vieux, Richard Cavé, and Mickael Guirand. The name of the band was created by combining the first two letters of each member’s first name: Carlo, Richard and Mickael. Carimi was the Haitian Music Industry’s biggest group of the 2000s, earning a reputation that spanned the globe. The group created a new style of music, a blend of new-generation kompa that was made to get you dancing, and left nobody indifferent. Their popularity grew thanks to hits like Ayiti Bang Bang, Buzz, Kita Nago. Their concerts in the USA, Haiti, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Polynesia, and the Americas attracted huge crowds, making Carimi one of the most popular bands on the creole music scene.
