Archive: An n’ Pale with Storyteller Charlot Lucien, October 27, 2013


A l’Orale, by Jocelyn McCalla

The ability to tell stories without sacrificing the minute details and the nuance that bring characters and situations to life is a rare gift. Charlot Lucien’s keen observations of life in Haiti and the Diaspora were brought vividly to the fore this afternoon at the latest An n’ Pale conversation held by Haiti Cultural Exchange. For this performance, Lucien teamed up with Marc Mathelier on the acoustic guitar. We followed Mme Lefranc through her trials and tribulations in Cambridge, experienced the wisdom on Sonson Moun Fou and many other characters… stories meant to delight yet to inform action… great stories that build community and that deserve a broader audience. Lucien has three CDs of storytelling under his belt… at $12 each, they make a wonderful holiday gift. Check out his website: Tell him J. sent you.
