Featured Artist:
Jehyna Sahyeir (HaitiXNY Artist) is an emerging singer, actress, and spoken word artist based in Haiti. She has presented with Haiti-based collectives and organizations: Feu Vers, Pyepoudre Cultural Center, and FOKAL; performed with renowned artists such as James Germain and Erol Josué; and has participated in Carifesta XIII in Barbados and Rencontres Québécoises. She embarks on her solo career with her first performance in New York, as part of Selebrasyon!


Selebrasyon! is New York City’s only festival dedicated to the promotion of the highest caliber film, dance, music, literature, and visual art of Haiti and its Diaspora. Haiti Cultural Exchange’s 3rd Biennial celebration will bring artists and diverse communities together to experience Haitian culture, its creative foundations, and its powerful legacy.

This year, HCX is pleased to announce that six Haiti-based artists will be participating in Selebrasyon! programming. This is all thanks to the support we have received for our HaitiXNY initiative, which aims to bring more artists from Haiti to present their work.
