About The Event
Krewe du Kanaval Pre-Party!!!
Lakou Mizik is a multigenerational collective of Haitian musicians formed in the aftermath of the devastating
2010 earthquake. The group includes elder legends and rising young talents, united in a mission to honor the
healing spirit of their culture and communicate a message of pride, strength and hope to their countrymen and
Music is at the core of Haiti’s sense of identity, and musicians have always played an important role in society,
both in documenting the country’s history and helping to shape its path forward. Today, a young generation of
artists is keeping this tradition alive, narrating the world they live in through music that is made in their
neighborhoods, villages and post-earthquake camps. Lakou Mizik brings together these musical generations in
celebration of the cultural continuum while using Haiti’s deep well of creative strength to shine a positive light
on this tragically misrepresented country.
