Beyond the Headlines: Haiti in Music

Members of Chicago’s Crossing Borders Music Collective fill St. John’s Cathedral with sounds exploring the rich musical tradition of Haiti. Presented by the Colorado Haiti Project, a nonprofit dedicated to combatting poverty in the island nation, the evening sonically illustrates facets of Haitian life.

German-Haitian artist Werner Jaegerhuber’s Suite Folklorique opens the evening. Blending techniques from European classical music with Haitian folk, the cycle strikes an melancholy and desperate note in “Erzulie Malade” (Erzulie is Angry), a plea to the great goddess of voodoo, and touches something otherworldly in “Invocation a Dambala,” conjuring up Dambala the Dispenser of Life. Next, quartets from composers and emigrants Claude Dauphin and Rudy Perrault explore themes of exile from the homeland. The evening concludes with excerpts from Kenbe La (Hold On), a documentary about the Holy Trinity School in Port-au-Prince, and performances by some of their students.
