The Barikad Crew Tragedy

Post by Gelin_ » Fri Sep 05, 2008 10:12 pm

I came across this sad report not too long ago:
Last week there was a tragic accident in Haiti. Three Haitian hip hop singers, another band member, and the driver of the group Barikad Crew died in a terrible car accident. According to News reports, they were electrocuted and burned beyond recognition when a high tension electrical wire struck their car after hitting a divider. The following day, a long time girlfriend of one of the singers, K-Tafalk, committed suicide 24 hours after the death of her long time boyfriend.

In Haiti you will hear and watch music from Barikad Crew's album on an almost 24 hour basis on the radio and television. Young people from all over the country are swarming to the scene of the horrific accident which took the lives of 5 people, including 3 members of the Barikad Crew, the most popular rap group in Haiti with record album sales, and a very loyal following.
