They marched in their thousands to the throb of drums and the incantatory wail of the long bamboo wind instruments Haitians call vaksin. Joyously waving flags and chanting, the multitude surged from the wealthy suburb of Pétionville down the traffic-clogged Route de Frères, where phantasmal swirls of dust were illuminated by the lights of cars and the kerosene flames of women selling patties.
After 4 long years of being MIA for the annual New Orlean Jazz Festival, HB is proud to announce that we are returning for the 2016 edition to take place from April 22nd thru May 1st.
New Orlean Jazz Festival is one of the biggest celebration of music around the world. With 12 stages of soul-stirring music—jazz, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, blues, R&B, rock, funk, African, Latin, Caribbean, folk, and much more—the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is a unique celebration. New Orleans has a lot in common in Haiti, from food to music, you can even walk into a shop on Bourbon Street to see a Haitian voodoo priest. We will bring you full coverage.
We already have our press kit and media invitation we will definitely be there this year, right before we depart for Miami Compas Fest 2016.
