RAM presents an afternoon of dancing and drumming to explore Haitian Folklore dance and Rara (a form of festival music originating in Haiti) in conjunction with our current exhibition PÒTOPRENS: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince.
RAM will perform on Sunday, September 9 from 8-10 pm during Second Sundays.
Price: Free with RSVP
Audience: Open to ages 9+
Materials: Those interested in participating in the Rara drumline must bring their own hand or percussion instrument.
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.
