Traditional Haitian roots ensemble Chouk Bwa Libète are the essence of Haiti’s vodou heartlands. Their “sublime” (fRoots) sound is improvised in the moment and rises in waves of percussion, vocals and dance. With deep roots in the West African Vodún religion, the band blends traditional songs with compositions by lead vocalist and poet Jean-Claude ‘Sambaton’ Dorvil. The celebratory power of their sound has already ignited audiences at major festivals around the world, including Roskilde, WOMAD and Amsterdam Roots.
This performance is part of the Making Tracks season. Making Tracks is programmed & produced by KAPA Productions.
