Hey there, world! I’m Anie Polidor, but you can think of me as a triple threat from Cap-Haitien: singer, dancer, and seamstress extraordinaire. Born on a sunny September 26th back in 1989, my roots dig deep into the beautiful soil of Ferrier North-East, Haiti. I can’t remember a time when music wasn’t my spiritual haven. Growing up, I was the girl whose voice resonated through the pews of gospel choirs and filled the air at cultural 2 events.
Fast forward to 2011, my talents found a stage—I mean a real one—at the Digicel Stars talent competition. Call it my artistic Declaration of Independence if you will. I felt like the Haitian Joan of Arc, fighting not with a sword but with my voice.
Oh, but hold on, that was just the prologue. The real game-changer came in 2019 when I dropped my first song, ‘Santim Byen nan Braw’. Imagine this as my Sputnik moment, an inaugural launch that sent ripples through the world, or at least through the communities that resonate with my music. Then came 2022, a sequel but not a repetition, with my soul-stirring ‘Papa Pitit Mwen’.
You see, singing for me isn’t just about hitting the right notes; it’s my way of undressing my soul. If words fail me, my melodies pick up the slack. My songs are like a warm hug or a loving whisper, aimed to bring joy, love, and sometimes, a happy tear to your eyes.
So why do I do it? Well, let’s just say that if my heart and soul had a voice, you’d hear them in my music. My motivation to sing is as intrinsic as gravity is to Earth—inescapable and utterly natural.
