The Jacmel Music Festival

Being late seems to be my issue when it comes to news that is outside of pop culture's radar. The Marley brothers, as well as Les Nubians and several prominent Haitian bands will be performing in Haiti from May 25 to the 27th.

According to their website:

"The mission of Festival Mizik Jakmel is to reconnect Haiti with the outside world through music.
By providing enrichment and education through a high quality music event we will empower the Haitian people, stimulate the local economy, encourage global dialogue, educate, entertain and provide an amazing experience to all our audience. This event will promote a positive global perception of Haiti thus aid in it’s economic development through sustainable initiatives."
