"Take control of our destiny! The time has come to do so! Haiti, our dear country, is the mother of the slave revolution and the land of liberty. Her sons and daughters must be proud of the exploits of their ancestors and assume the important role played by their country in the history of the world. AYIBOBO! This song invites us all to renew our sense of pride, to regain our dignity and to rally the whole world around a key concept for the evolution of the human race: Spiritual Freedom. We are people of Light! This melody and these words reinforce the harmony necessary for our emancipation. Embrace our culture—let's go back to the source of our history and our existence! Ayibobo evokes the words "blessings," "gathering," "unity," and "strength." With this song, let us welcome the spirit of our ancestors and remind the whole world of the power of our people. "
