“Lakou Mizik, formed after the devastating Haitian earthquakes of 2010, is a genial cross-generational coalition along the lines of the Buena Vista Social Club. Its songs, some of which are topical, draw on the rhythms and incantations of voodoo, the trumpeting of rara carnival music and hearty call-and-response vocal harmonies on their way to galloping, exultant dance grooves.” - The New York Times

We are delighted to be able to present the band in what will be one of just a handful of gigs this year. Be prepared to learn something of the history and recent past of Haiti and its music … but don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes as well!
