‘Lè Ma Monte Chwal Mwen’ is a traditional vodou folk song that Mélissa first heard as a child on Martha Jean-Claude’s album, Canciones de Haiti. “The title of the song means ‘when I’m riding my horse’. In a vodou ceremony, when someone is possessed by a spirit, they are that spirit’s horse and the spirit is riding them. It’s also a reference to how vodou is at times very erotic”, explains Laveaux.
