Selebrasyon! | Lakou NOU + Mizik Ayiti : Thursday, June 23rd

05.14.16

Mizik Ayiti at Pioneer Works

Meet the artists of Lakou NOU at Mizik Ayiti! an evening of Haitian music and dance in Red Hook’s premiere arts space. Presented in collaboration with Pioneer Works, Clocktower Radio, & Radyo Shak.

On the night of Mizik Ayiti, Clocktower Radio releases a cassette mixtape of archived Radyo Shak recordings from their pirate radio station during the Ghetto Biennale of Port-au-Prince. The recordings are in both English and Kreyol, and include snippets of slam poetry, traditional Haitian recipes, historical tales, interviews with biennale artists, Rara street festivals, twoubadou crooners, and all vinyl DJ sets.

In rural Haiti, the Lakou communal living system embodies the intersection of land, family, and spirituality. Lakou members develop reciprocal patterns of resource sharing and jointly work the land. Lakou NOU (“Our Yard: in Haitian Creole), HCX’s newest program, will provide four artists of Haitian descent with the opportunity to create and present new work by connecting their skills and talents to four traditionally under-served Brooklyn neighborhoods, home to generations of Haitians and Haitian-Americans: Crown Heights, Canarsie, East Flatbush, and Flatbush.

After receiving over 25 applications, the Selebrasyon! Advisory Committee chose the following four Lakou NOU Residents based on their demonstrated commitment to the Haitian community and their proven artistic excellence:
