Hors d’Oeuvres & Cash Bar
Daniel Bernard Roumain’s (DBR) acclaimed work as a composer and performer spans more than two decades, and has been commissioned by venerable artists and institutions worldwide. “About as omnivorous as a contemporary artists gets” (New York Times), DBR is perhaps the only composer whose collaborations traverse the worlds of Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Savion Glover and Lady Gaga. Known for his signature violin sounds infused with a myriad of electronic and urban music influences, DBR takes his genre-bending music beyond the proscenium.
Jephté Guillaume was born in Haiti and moved to New York as a child, along with his family. Jephté’s signature sound combines acoustic grooves with fierce electronic drive, known around the world as the Tet Kale Sound. His heavy rotations DJing internationally – with his original tracks, his classic remixes and the golden touch he has put on numerous artists – have made him an indelible presence worldwide.
