Unrequited devotion has many women underrepresented in the Haitian Music Industry (HMI). Blending new-age African rhythms with melodic Compas styles, this project focuses on a 6-track debut album for artistic alter ego: Widdo named Venom. Showcasing talented efforts of a new-age artist, Haitian Kompa and R&B styles will empower women in the HMI; inspiring the rising generation. With the ongoing political crisis and social unrest in Haiti, part of the EP will shed light on its never-ending protests allowing its people to have a voice. Overall, it showcases Widline’s ability to produce, songwrite, and be an artist. Using electronic music with innovation by uniting different styles and technological skills. This will build Widline’s portfolio, allowing her to apply the knowledge she’s attained from her undergraduate journey to her tenure at Berklee Valencia maters.
