It has been an overall consensus that Micheal Brun is not only a Great DJ, but also a wonderful person. What has impressed us was Michael Brun has been his humility, and his sincere love for Haiti. With that being said,we hope you enjoy this Q&A. A special thank you to Michael Brun for taking the time out of his busy schedule to answer our questions!
