Community Outreach: Boukman Eksperyans

Today we had a little surprise for our students at Audio Institute. Boukman Eksperyans is a world renowned mizik rasin band from Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Boukman Eksperyans was founded in 1978 by Theodore ‘Lolo’ Beaubrun and his sister Marjorie ‘Nola’ Beabrun, Mimerose Beaubrun, and our very own Audio Institute Director, Daniel ‘Dadi’ Beaubrun. Their debut Grammy -nominated album Vodou Adjae ushered in a revolution in world music. This brilliant release introduced the world to Boukman’s tropical high energy sound fusing traditional Haitian and Caribbean rhythms with rock and reggae. Boukman Eksperyans surprised our students with an impromptu jam session and workshop, a truly incredible experience. MESI!
