When a United Airlines flight in Chicago was delayed for nearly six hours earlier this month, a Haitian band on board took it upon themselves to be the in-flight entertainment.

On July 23 members of Port-au-Prince-based band Lakou Mizik treated their fellow passengers to an impromptu performance. The jam session not only entertained those on board -- it also captivated the internet.

The nine-member group, which started in 2010 after Haiti's catastrophic earthquake, performed two songs, "Azouke" and "Parenn Legba," as they walked down the plane's aisle with their instruments in tow. The band performed in its native Creole and a "voodoo language," according to the band's manager Zach Niles.
