HCX is proud to present our third annual Mizik Ayiti! Summer Concert Series.

The summer is a time to relax and indulge the senses in the warming sun, sip a cool drink, and get moving with some fantastic Haitian music. This program is sure to offer up some hot sounds and a great time.

The first concert of this series will feature Melanie Charles and Rat Habitat at the Brooklyn Museum.

Fronted by Haitian American Brooklyn-born singer/songwriter Melanie Charles (D’flower), Rat Habitat features Jordan Peters, Jesse Fischer, Nicholas Semrad and Dana Hawkins.  Together they perform a mix of electronic, soul, hip-hop, indie rock, sprinkled with a hint of Haitian Swag.

Melanie creates a refreshing blend of textures. From light feel-good anthems to heartfelt stories of what it means to be a 20-30 something “RAT” yearning for love and stability while dealing with rejection and the complexities of family dynamics and identity.

This program is presented as part of the Brooklyn Museum’s Target First Saturdays program and HCX’s Mizik Ayiti! Summer Concert Series.
