Experience Ayiti Benefit Concert

  • Drom 85 Avenue A New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)

Experience Ayiti (XA) supports the education of Haiti's youth through the performing arts by providing instruments, workshops, and other necessary resources for their training, performance, and growth. Through our efforts we hope to create an international community in Haiti composed of artists, teachers, researchers, professionals, ethnomusicologists, and filmmakers.

Music has the power to change the world and the skills required to learn an instrument (dedication, team work, improvisation, communication, math and logic, etc) are important beyond the bandstand in creating a generation of Haitians who will become the leaders of their generation.

An excerpt from the upcoming Soundkeeper Recordings release by Markus Schwartz & Lakou Brooklyn, entitled Kay Sa. Available May 1, 2019 exclusively from Featuring Markus Schwartz on Haitian drums and percussion, Godwin Louis -sax, Monvelyno Alexis -guitar and vox, and Bobby Raymond on bass.
