MIAMI – What better way to celebrate Haitian Heritage Month, along with the anniversary of a key cultural event in the heart of the Haitian Diaspora, than to have Haitian hiphop artist/singer, Wyclef Jean take center stage in the heart of Little Haiti.
On Friday, May 19, Wyclef will headline Sounds of Little Haiti’s monthly music showcase at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, 212 NE 59 Terrace in Miami. The event offers a variety of cultural experiences that include a musical showcase, children’s corner, art exhibition and shopping in the Caribbean Marketplace.
Other performers for the night include: Kreyòl La, Dat7, Carnival Band, Rara Lakay, We Them Zoe’s and The Nancy St. Léger Danse Ensemble. The Miami Carnival Haitian band, Ti-Chapo will power a fashion show presentation of their costumes and music will be provided throughout the evening by DJ Big Ben. It will be hosted by Mecca aka Grimo and held from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The event has a family vibe and serves as the perfect way to celebrate the key and vital contributions of Haitians in the South Florida community.
