    Barbès presents

    Between 1936 and 1937, while working for the Library of Congress, Alan Lomax made a number of trips to Haiti where he recorded hundreds of hours of tapes. For the first time, those recordings are being released along with Alan Lomax’s journal and field notes. The recordings document a variety of popular styles, including many Rara groups. Rara is festival music usually played by marching bands. The music is played on drums and homemade bamboo horns (sometimes replaced by PVC pipes) and is often associated with certain aspects of Vaudou rituals. it’s also a purely celebratory music which can have political and protest overtones. To celebrate the release, Barbès is proud to present a night dedicated to Haitian Rara.

    FIAF presents
    For our World Nomads 2009 series dedicated to Haiti last spring, FIAF worked closely with David Belle, co-founder of Ciné Institute in Jacmel. Jacmel is a small town south of Port-au-Prince that has also been hit very hard by the destructive earthquake. Thankfully, the Ciné Institute team and students are all alive; however the town is completely devastated. David Belle and the Institute have just sent an urgent appeal for help for the town—food, water, blankets, medicine, and of course money.

  • The devastating images from Haiti’s capital have been a call to action for many New Yorkers who want to lend their help and assistance. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti and to the Haitian community here in New York City, many of whom are now seeking information about their loved ones.
    Relief efforts are already underway by the United Nations and hundreds of countries. However, as details of what exactly is needed in Haiti are yet to be unveiled, New Yorkers have an opportunity to leave a lasting, concrete contribution to the embattled nation in this time of tragedy. My office, spearheaded by Deputy Borough President Rosemonde Pierre-Louis, a Haitian American, have quickly organized together with The Haitian Roundtable a major fundraising event to provide the US fund for UNICEF, one of the organizations leading the relief efforts on the scene, with much needed funding for the purchase of supplies and equipment that address Haiti’s most urgent needs.
