Jonathan Michel Presents: L'Ouverture

L' Ouverture is a collective of musicians with a familial, social or artistic connection to Haïti, celebrating its rich music and culture along with that of the African Diaspora.

Curated by Jonathan Michel, L' Ouverture's name refers to both the leader of the Haïtian Revolution, Toussaint L'Ouverture, and the word's literal meaning (The Opening). Implying,

"an opening for those outside the culture to experience the music and stories of the Haïtian people...and to inspire those who are from the ‘motherland’ but are physically away to keep Haïti in their hearts, minds and actions.” (Sharonne Cohen. Afropop Worldwide)

***This performance at Ginny’s is in celebration of “18 Mai” (Haitian Flag Day) Come out (BRING YOUR FLAG!) and celebrate Haitian heritage and cultural legacy
