The Center for Arts at the Armory Spotlight Series Presents Wesli from Haiti via Montreal – Roots and Rara with Afrobeat and Funk.

Wesli’s musical journey has gone from stringing up an oil can with nylon fishing string to winning a Canadian Juno Award for World Music Album of the Year.

Get ready to welcome Wesli and kick off the Center for Arts at the Armory’s Spotlight Series for Fall 2022. Wesli and his eclectic Montreal band blend their unique styles to craft an exuberant, joyful music experience that will spill off the stage and move you to dancing. Bask in the playful rhythms that Wesli carries from his home in Haiti.

Join us at the Center for Arts at the Armory on October 27 to experience Wesli and celebrate Fèt Gede, Haiti’s Day of the Dead, and prepare to enjoy many other performance and art offerings this fall that celebrate Haitian art and traditions.

Tickets for Wesli are on sale; purchase yours on Eventbrite!

Doors open at 7:00PM; Show starts at 8:00PM.

The opener will be Akili Jamal Haynes!
