Compas:

It is also known to be spelled Kompa as well as many other variations. It is a Haitian style "modern merengue" that is the national music of the country of Haiti. 

"Often described as a “modern merengue,” compas is wildly popular throughout the entirety of the Caribbean; though because of Nemours Jean Baptiste’s (not to be confused with well-known merengue musician Antoine “Ti Manno” Jean-Baptiste) musical contributions to the genre, compas direct is normally seen as rooted in Haiti." -Haitian Music

Nemours Jean-Baptiste and Webert Sicot formed a group called "Conjunto International" that lasted a while before infighting split them up. Well, for one thing they came in and made their impact.
