The band’s music spans cadence-lypso, Haitian compas, zouk and bouyon, among other genres. Since their debut in 2002, they have become crowd favourites at the World Creole Music Festival. Triple Kay Band has also wowed audiences with standout performances in 2006 and 2010 at Antilliaanse Feesten Hoogstraten in Belgium, Terre de Blues Festival in Marie Galante in 2012 and at numerous carnivals around the world.
