About Michaël Brun:
Michaël Brun’s life has been punctuated by a series of resets. When he left Haiti as a teen in the wake ofa coup to go to school in the U.S., when he left school to tour the world as an EDM DJ, performing for tens of thousands at festivals and collaborating with the likes of Tiësto and Calvin Harris, when he left that life behind to go back home to Haiti, collaborating with local musicians and mentoring kids, and now, as he prepares to bring the music and culture of Haiti and the diaspora to the world through his music after signing his first major label deal with Astralwerks. Brun has produced multi-platinum records and number one hits, won Grammys, and played Coachella at 20 years old but now, he wants to impact the world. Brun’s new music is a fusion of the cultures he’s encountered in his travels and 2023 will see anew renaissance of his talented sound. His recent singles include “Clueless,” a collaboration with the rising Nigerian singer Oxlade, recording during his first-ever recording session in the U.S. and “ChargeIt,” featuring Masego, Jozzy, and Bayka. His Bayo tour, a touring version of the block parties he would throw in Haiti that would bring together veteran and emerging local artists (Boukman Eksperyans, TabouCombo) with some of the world’s biggest stars (Major Lazer, Mr. Eazi, Wyclef), will return this Summer with stops in Montreal on July 7th, New York on July 22nd, and more to come.
