Creole Choir of Cuba

IU’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies announces a new community outreach event:

On Monday, September 26, at 4:00 p.m. at the Monroe County Public Library, The Creole Choir of Cuba will conduct a musical demonstration, to be followed by a Q&A session regarding culture, history, music, and art in Cuba and Haiti.

The Choir’s music celebrates the history of their Haitian descendants enslaved in the Caribbean from West Africa, combining music passed down from their families since the early 19th century with modern Haitian sounds and rhythms.

This event is free and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend. For more information on the group, please visit http://188.65.113.241/~creolech/.

The Creole Choir of Cuba also performs twice at the Lotus World Music Festival, Sept 23-24, 2011. For tickets and more information, please visit: http://lotusfest.org/creole-choir-of-cuba.
