Kicking off our series of films and videos from and about Haiti is this Brunch of MixTapes and Talk among several great people: Lolo and Manzé of Boukman Eksperyans; Régine Chassagne of Arcade Fire and the support-Haiti entities
KANPE and Krewe du Kanaval; Professor of Linguistics Dr. Lyonel Sanon of the University of Haiti (a visiting Fulbright Scholar at Xavier University); Nic Brierre Aziz, Curator of Community Engagement at the New Orleans Museum of Art; and
Damas "Fanfan" Louis, a leading musician with the Katherine Dunham Dance Company and a Houngan Asogwe of Vodou.
Moderator for the group is Haitian-born Maryse Déjean of New Orleans' WWOZ.
