Michel Martelly, Olivier’s Father, is Best Known for Revolutionizing Compas Music Over his Two-Decade Career
LOS ANGELES, CA / Olivier Martelly, founder of full-service music production company BigO Productions, recently announced his decision to undertake the management of Sweet Micky‘s, his father, music career by planning a comeback tour. Martelly will oversee many aspects of the much-anticipated concert series, such as sponsorship opportunities and media coverage. More importantly, the Martelly family has used this opportunity to bond over their music and showmanship roots, after a period of 5 years during which the group Sweet Micky was absent from the Haitian music scene.
We are excited to put together a concert tour that the public will not soon forget
“We are excited to put together a concert tour that the public will not soon forget,” said Martelly, who has produced music for the likes of international artists such as Sean Paul. “Sweet Micky was a pioneer in the unique compas genre, and we look forward to creating a show with epic performances that stay true to his style.“
Sweet Micky, also known as Michel Martelly, started his musical career in 1988 with the popular single “Ou La La.” Following the success of his debut single, he went on to record 14 studio albums and many live CDs until 2008. Sweet Micky’s music features styles such as slow meringue, compas, troubadour, carnival meringue, and rabòday.
Olivier Martelly’s production experience dates back to 2009, the same year that BigO Productions was founded. In July 2015, Olivier Martelly and his company organized a free concert featuring Swizz Beatz, Chris Brown, and Lil Wayne for rap and hip-hop fans in Haiti. The founder of BigO later said that the concert was important to him because he wanted to provide the Hatian people with hope and unity through music.
“With this concert…the crowd connected with the artists and we were able to experience all those emotions as they watched the performances,” said Martelly to music magazine HipHopWired.com.
Martelly hopes to do the same with his father’s show, which debuts later this year. Anyone who wishes to keep updated with Martelly’s work can subscribe to Olivier Martelly on Twitter or follow Olivier Martelly on Instagram.
