Haitian band to play at Town Hall Theater April 18

MIDDLEBURY — Town Hall Theater and Middlebury Underground present Haitian band Lakou Mizik on Tuesday, April 18 at the Middlebury theater. Lakou Mizik is a multigenerational collective of Haitian musicians formed in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake. The group includes elder legends and rising young talents, united in a mission to honor the healing spirit of their collective culture and communicate a message of pride, strength and hope to their countrymen and the world.
The idea for the band was hatched by Steeve Valcourt, a guitarist and singer whose father is one Haiti’s iconic musicians, singer Jonas Attis, and American producer Zach Niles, who 10 years previously introduced Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars to the world.  Niles, Valcourt and Attis assembled an exceptional lineup, creating their own musical A-Team, a powerhouse collective of singers, rara horn players, drummers, guitarists and even an accordionist.
Lakou Mizik’s performance at Town Hall Theater will also include Middlebury’s own Jazz/Latin/Fusion band, Mogani, featuring Cobey Gatos on keys, Glenn Goodwin on bass, Steve MacLauchlan on sax and flute, Justin Perdue on guitar, Daniel Scharstein on drums, and Carlos Velez on percussion.
The music on Tuesday starts at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at www.townhalltheater.org, by phone at (802) 382-9222, in person at the Town Hall Theater Box Office (daily except Sunday, 12-5 p.m.), or at the door if available.
