Mizik Ayiti at Pioneer Works (1)

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.

Lakou NOU is Haiti Cultural Exchange’s newest program. It 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.

In addition to presenting the Lakou NOU artists, on the night of Mizik Ayiti, Clocktower Radio will release 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.
