Spanish remake of some konpa songs
 

1.) comando tiburon - te pille* (dp express)

2.) victor roque & la manzana - sabor y pena* (dp express)

3.) the new york band - juicy Lucy* (tabou combo)

4.) juan luis guerra - mal de amor* (nemours jn baptiste)

5.) wganda kenya - kiliboi* (coupe cloue)

6.) wilfrido vargas - el jardino* (dp, tabou)

7.) johny ventura - bobine* (les ambassadeurs)

8.) wganda kenya - el evangelio* (shleu shleu)

9.) joe arroyo - musa original* (nemours, dp)

10.) carlos santana - foo foo* (tabou)

the "new york band" and "joe arroyo" have other tabou remake. it seems tabou combo and dp express had their songs remade by more Latin bands than any other Haitian bands.

Michel "El Buenon" Batista has a 2010 album out called “Estilo Y Conciencia”.
Some salsa songs are new some are known from his albums before... - it's dominican salsa.

There is one compas-merengue song about Tabou Combo on it - Tabu Para America Latina...*

It seems like Michel batista left the kompa music industry for Good.

04/30/2010 - 23:34

I always wondered if Michel was actually Haitian or Dominican
Can anybod help on that point?
Since as gnb911 quoted, he does not sing kompa anymore.
