Today, May 18th is Haitian Flag Day, and Sounds of Little Haiti will be flying the blue and red all night. Haitian Flag Day celebrates the culture and recreates the magic of Haiti for Haitian people living in all four corners of the world who still call Haiti home. Little Haiti is the destination to dance with pride and commemorate the culture of home.
Every third Friday of the month, Sounds of Little Haiti takes over the Little Haiti Cultural Complex; it’s an outpouring of rich cultural experiences: a musical showcase, family art activities, art exhibitions, and shopping in the Caribbean Marketplace.
Sandy Dorsainvil of Sounds of Little Haiti and Maximillian Consultants said, “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate Haitian Flag Day in Little Haiti. The Haitian flag is a symbol of pride, and our team has worked to put together an event to celebrate the authentic culture and heritage of Haiti.”
This free outdoor event is a magnet intended to bring together Haitians in the Diaspora, local residents, and tourists where they can sample, share, and see authentic Haitian culture and its influence in the South Florida community. The event will be hosted by Mecca (a.k.a. Grimo).
The show kicks off at 7 P.M. and will end with a finale from Rara Lakay at 11 P.M.
Sponsors for the event include Maximillian Consultants Inc., Purforce Group, Prestige Beer, the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, Keon Hardemon, the Chair of the City of Miami Commission, the Office of Mayor Francis Suarez, Magic City Innovation District Foundation, Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, Island T.V., Cola Couronne, Radio Mega Radio Flor, and WSRF 1580.
Neil Fairman, Chairman, MAGIC City Innovation District Foundation said, “We are thrilled to be able to partner with and serve the community alongside Sounds of Little Haiti, such a wonderful and long-standing organization. Our team has worked to become active participants in the local community and the community organizations, such as this one, that have been working within Little Haiti for years. I applaud their efforts to share authentic Haitian culture with the local community.”
