Voudou rock legends RAM are a mizik rasin (roots music) powerhouse Haitian band. Folkloric polyrhythms intertwine harmoniously with punk guitar riffs and Caribbean dance melodies. Led by the entrancing singer Lunise, they hold court at their home venue, the historic Hotel Oloffson in downtown Port-au-Prince every Thursday night. Bandleader Richard Morse, third generation musician (his mother was revered Haitian folksinger Emerante de Pradines), began his career as a student, playing in a New Wave band in 1970s New York City’s CBGB scene. He returned to Haiti as a young man and took over the Oloffson Hotel. RAM was born from his musical explorations with the hotel’s in-house musicians. Richard and Lunise’ son William has recently become a featured member of the band.
