Mario Mayala is by far the greatest Haitian guitarist rock star that we know. He is the commandeer of the band Skah Shah and has forged countless hits that resonate til this day. Compa music like many other genres has evolved throughout the generations that it birthed. One thing that remains constant is the hypnotic electric guitars that envelope the music as you are compelled to dance or just reflect. Mario Mayala has done things with the guitar that only few can say they have done. Some call him “The Haitian Hendrix” but I say the one and only Mario Mayala rest in paradise.
