Bohio Music Album Release Party

  • Shapeshifter Lab 18 Whitwell Place Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)

Join Haiti Cultural Exchange to celebrate Bohio Music’s (Riva Nyri Précil and Monvelyno) latest album ‘Ayiti Nan Kay La’ (Haiti in the house), which consists of 17 original songs in Haitian Creole and English. Each song is a combination of Haitian rhythms, traditional Haitian and African instruments, topped with electronic influences and conscious lyricism.

On a joint mission to illuminate Haitian culture, this duo's new album reflects the unique beauty of BOHIO, which means homeland and was the original name of the island of Haiti. Together they serve the world as self-proclaimed cultural ambassadors “bringing Haitian culture into the light."
