While the country of Haiti has experienced innumerable hardships, the people have shown that no matter the circmustance, they will bounce back and keep a positive outlook on things. One source of such positive energy over the past several years is Haiti’s love for local electronic music.

THUMP has put together an uplifting documentary that introduces viewers to several of Haiti’s most influential DJs to learn about their backgrounds and how the rise of electronic music in the country has given people hope and a way to escape the hardships that are unfortunately very common for most.
