Official Music video for “Their Blood, Bondye” from the album NWAYO, written by Pauline Jean and award-winning author Edwidge Danticat. The song is a dedication in the form of a prayer, to their ancestors and the people of Haiti, who have endured tremendous suffering and loss, yet have shown great strength, courage and pride.
In support of Haitian musicians who have been displaced and negatively impacted by Hurricane Matthew, Pauline Jean is raising funds for the music community in Jeremie by donating all proceeds from the sales of “Their Blood, Bondye” to the Jeremie Disaster Relief Fund.
