Since 2007, the Haiti Jazz Foundation carries out the Port-au-Prince International Jazz Festival (PAPJAZZ) and other related activities in an objective to promote Jazz music especially Creole Jazz which tends to emancipate itself year after year on the national scene and internationally. In order to gain a better exposure and popularize this musical style, we created METROJAZZ, a radio show. The main objective of this projects was to broaden the audience by keeping a more constant dissemination of Jazz news and educate the younger crowd throughout the year which has undoubtedly strengthen the promotion of Jazz music as well as promoting Haitian and foreign artists programmed in each festival editions. The one-hour French and Creole radio show was broadcasted on Radio Metropole (100.1), twice a week and hosted by music journalist / author composer, Montreal based, Ralph Boncy (Radio Canada, Musique Plus, etc.). Its content included current jazz and jazz news in the World along with news of the “Creole jazz” scene through interviews and local or visiting artists in Haiti.
