On Decmber 3-5, the New Tropic and Fondasyon Zaka/ZakaFest will present “Little Haiti After Dark: Kreyol Basel” starting at 6 p.m.
Curated by Yasmine Samimy, the photographic exhibit is a raw, unapologetic and authentic view of Little Haiti’s mystical “after-dark” community. The “After Dark” photographic exhibit gathers the work of four photographers who collectively tell the story of Little Haiti’s community within a community. The photographs highlight the late night ‘rara-bands’ and parade of Little Haiti, the midnight Voodoo ceremonies, the botanica shops, and most importantly the people who are the heartbeat of the community.
The photographers include: Alain Pierre Louis, Gerry L’aurore, Woosler Delisfort, and Johanne Rahaman. The celebration will also include performances by star-studded lineup of: Empress Addi, Abstract V, Sanba Noe and Neg Yo, Nixon Dimes, Rara Kuyu, Rara Rock, Court Poyser, Eric Noxe, and Kazoots.
This free admission event will kick off with a meet and greet of the artist on Thursday accompanied by live music and food. Friday, the exhibition will be on display with more live music. Saturday, the exhibition will close with key performance by Kazoots.
