Fabrice Rouzier, Mover and Shaker in Haitian Music Industry

Konpa musician, Fabrice Rouzier, was born in Port-au-Prince in 1967. At four years old, he began studying the piano, tutored by his Aunt Marguerite Borno. By the age of 17, he was a studio musician, working with the likes of Hans Peters, Bobby Denis, and Patrick Dejean. Two years later, he helped found Mizik Mizik. His track record of albums worked on has exceeded 300 so far in his career.


Part of a seminal movement, he became instrumental in cultivating Nouvelle Generation Konpa, helping such music artists as Emeline Michel, Belo, and Michel Martelly emerge onto the music scene. A potent music force, Rouzier also was the genius behind Haiti Troubadours CD compilation, which he recorded at the new Soleil Sound studio. Always looking for new musical horizons, he recorded balladeers Jude Jean and Tifane, helping to make their careers.
