TRAILER


 

MORE INFO

Multigenerational Haitian music collective Lakou Mizik—creole for “home music”—expresses national pride and hope with joyous, danceable abandon. The nine-member ensemble was formed in partnership with international music producer (and Vermont native) Zach Niles in the wake of the devastating 2010 Haitian earthquake. Its irresistible music combines inspiring, socially conscious lyrics with insistent vodou drumming, lively Rara horns, Motown swagger and a soupçon of French café accordion.

Rain Location: Spaulding Auditorium. Unticketed with space available on a first-come first-served basis.
