RAM is a drum-roots-driven powerhouse band from Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Led by the entrancing singer, Lunise, RAM combines ancient folkloric polyrhythms with punk rock guitar riffs and swinging Caribbean keyboard melodies for a truly magical experience on Thursdays at Hotel Oloffson, where RAM has consistently gigged for the last 25 years, as well as international concerts and festivals.
