Arts at the Armory Spotlight Series presents Lakou Mizik from Haiti as part of their U.S. tour on May 6, 2022 in the Armory Performance Hall. We expect tickets for this event to sell out, so lock yours in today! $30 advance and $40 at the door.
Lakou Mizik is a powerhouse collective of Haitian roots music with a soulful energy and a mix of styles that feels mystical and familiar at the same time. In the wake of Haiti’s devastating earthquake the band came together to show the world that their country was much more than the sum of headlines that were being shot around the globe. We are loving their latest album, “Leave the Bones,” a ground-breaking collaboration between the multigenerational Lakou Mizik and Grammy-winning electronic musician Joseph Ray. Their album “HaitiaNola,” celebrating the shared cultural roots of Haiti and New Orleans with noted guests including the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, will also surely get you in the mood for this not-to-be-missed concert. Today, with their positive messages and roots revival music, they have become one of Haiti’s hottest exports and have gained an international following with their critically acclaimed debut album “Wa Di Yo” and their mystical, soulful, dance party inducing live shows.
