US Premiere

“There are full throated solos and passionate choral responses in Creole, creating a rich, ringing sonority which is sometimes defiant, sometimes soothing, but always thrilling.”
—Evening Standard (UK)

As part of the ¡Sí Cuba! Festival, BAM will present the historic US premiere of the Creole Choir of Cuba. Comprised of descendants of Haitian migrants, the Grammy-nominated group resurrects the half-heard voices and unsung songs lost to the official soundtrack of a nation. Soaring a capella arrangements of Haitian and Martinique merengues, mazurkas, and other styles-sung in Creole and strengthened by tight Afro-Caribbean percussion-come together in a stirring live performance.
