From voodoo to Holy Trinity: Haitian classical music
Friday, June 14th
DENVER, Colo. — The European classical tradition, Haitian folklore — including voodoo — and themes of exile will come together in a unique and colorful musical mélange when the Chicago-based Crossing Borders Music Collective performs in Denver June 14 in support of the Colorado Haiti Project.
“Haiti captures the minds and hearts of all who visit. But for most of us, traveling to this country so filled with vibrant sounds and colors is out of the question,” says Alison Rakotonirina, executive director of the Colorado Haiti Project. “Hearing this music, you’ll fall in love with Haiti, her people and her music.”
“Beyond the Headlines: Haiti in Music” will begin with German-Haitian composer Werner Jaegerhuber’s “Suite Folklorique,” a unique blend of German classical and folk music associated with various voodoo deities. Quartets by Haitian-born composers Claude Dauphin and Rudy Perrault explore the theme of exile from the homeland. There also will be works excerpted from the new documentary “Kenbe La” (“Hold On”), and also by students and teachers of the Holy Trinity School in Port-au-Prince.
