The Creole Choir of Cuba

June 4, 2011

Country of Origin Cuba
Description As part of the ¡Sí Cuba! Festival, BAM will present the historic US premiere of the Creole Choir of Cuba. Comprised of descendants of Haitian migrants, the Grammy-nominated group resurrects the half-heard voices and unsung songs lost to the official soundtrack of a nation. Soaring a capella arrangements of Haitian and Martinique merengues, mazurkas, and other styles-sung in Creole and strengthened by tight Afro-Caribbean percussion-come together in a stirring live performance.
