Lakou Miznik Workshop

History and Sounds of Haiti

Sunday, June 12, 1:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Rara is akin to Haiti’s version of New Orleans second line bands. Each neighborhood has their own band and throughout the country rival Rara groups have music showdowns. Rara consists of a series of single note horns and percussion. The horns were originally made from Bamboo but now consist of bas shorans made from PVC piping and Higher melodic horns made from tin and aluminum.

Lakou Mizik has two of the top players from the #1 Rara band in Haiti in it. You will not only hear about the history but also see how a melody is put together - ending in a mini Rara march around the space. Space is limited. On-site registration for this workshop is required via the Festival Information Tent as space is limited.
