Despite its struggles and recent natural disasters, the most commonly used phrase in Haiti is pa gen pwoblem,' that translates to 'no have problem', which sums up the unique energy of the island the locals uncanny ability to live in the moment and appreciate what they do have, which is quite a lot.

2020 saw Haitian artist Michael Brun expand his influence as one of Haiti’s most prominent cultural figures and musicians. "I’m really grateful for my experience growing up in a country as culturally, historically and musically rich as Haiti. Throughout my life, I’ve been able to visit so many beautiful places across the island and I hope that these suggestions will open your eyes to the beauty of Haiti. Each and every one has in some way helped shape me into who I am today."
