WASHINGTON: Dance Place Presents LAKOU MIZIK from Port-au-Prince, Haiti
African, French, Caribbean and American influences collide in Haiti like nowhere else in the world and LAKOU MIZIK draws inspiration from all of them. A collective of Haitian musicians, including master vodou drummer Sanba Zao and young stars Steeve Valcourt and Jonas Attis, LAKOU MIZIK creates deeply danceable grooves that feel strangely familiar and yet intensely new. The musicians draw on Haiti’s deep well of creative strength to shine a positive light on this tragically misrepresented country. Made possible through The Performing Americas Program, a partnership between the National Performance Network (NPN) and the Network of Cultural Promoters of Latin America and the Caribbean (La RED)
