To expose the community to a major part of South Florida's cultural background through the creation of a live Haitian jazz series

Haitian Neighborhood Center Sant La will create a music series to introduce the best Haitian jazz artists from around the globe to South Florida audiences. The concerts will showcase the complexity, versatility and sophistication of the Haitian musical tradition by introducing the work of performers who have created new sounds by infusing traditional Haitian rhythms with jazz standards. Through their creations, these artists have enjoyed a significant following, and are striving to extend the reach and impact of Haitian music globally.
