Zenglen became one of the wonders of the early 1990’s as they released the songs FIDEL on the album An Nou Alèz. In the song the band said that “change” is never easy and always faces obstacles, and resistance, but that they pledge to remain faithful (Fidel) to their mission which is to improve and modernize the Konpa rhythm.
The Konpa world was introduced to their new found stars like the guitarist and singer Brutus Derissaint and the lead singer Gary Didier Perez among others. In the song FIDEL the band said: Sé konsa se konsa se konsa la vi ya ye lè ou vle met chanjman reziztans tèt chaje.
At the end of 1999 the acquisition of the drummer Richard Herard (Richie) and the singer Gracia Delva took Zenglen to the level of a very competitive Konpa band in the demanding market as they released the album Easy Konpa with nothing but major hits song that were going to move the band to the front burner of the industry. Ever since that time Zenglen haven’t look back despite the so many changes of personnel that continues to occur.
In the following years Zenglen continued to amaze the Konpa fans all over the world with the releases of the albums Let It Groove and Do It Right. Reginald and Fréro, two young men fresh out of Haiti, both delivered in the album 5 Etwal that also include the songs Child Support and F.K.D. By the beginning of the year 2007 the new singer of Zenglen. By the month of March 2007, the band released the single Ou Fè Fot (O.F.F) with the voice of Kenny Desmangle on lead. They would go on to have the #1 tour in Haiti amongst their competitors touring Haiti at the same time.
Over the years the Konpa observers have seen broken pieces that continued to brake in even more pieces, but the band remains solid and true to their mission: Zenglen don’t change…Zenglen improve…like they often say in their songs “Sé pa changé nou change se pi bon’n vin’n pi bon.”
