THE LIFE SUCCESS AN BIO OF THE GROUP ZIN
The idea to create a very high caliber Konpa music band came
from Alex Abellard. In 1985, while attending The City College of New York, he met Eddy Saint-Vil; another passionate musician
who was also dreaming of creating a Konpa band that could reach the top of the Konpa music world. ZIN, currently dubbed "The
Hit Music Factory", is one of the most popular Haitian Konpa music bands.
The group's first public appearance in the beginning of 1988
at The City College of New York was a huge success and people knew then that ZIN was destined to be among the greatest in
the world of Konpa music. Live on stage, ZIN electrifies the crowd with ten musicians. The sweet and beautiful voice of Alan
Cave, the spicy tone of Alex Abellard, and Daphne Dary dancing and singing in sync with Virginia Mahotiere, keep the crowd
on its feet all night long.
ZIN is based in New York and performs every weekend (Friday,
Saturday and Sunday). Some of their regular spots are: SOB's (N.Y.), Cenegal (Brooklyn), RED.FORT (LI), Club A (Queens). However,

(Espace Chevreul: 2,500 people), Central Park New York: 15,000 people, New Orleans Jazz Festival: 10,000 people etc.
