FET GEDE IN LITTLE HAITI
Three nights of drumming
and dancing on 2 DVDs.

Released by Ekulnamm Productions.

DVD - 140 minutes

Just west of Interstate-95, shielded from the empty glamour of Miami Beach by eight lanes of highway traffic is a district with late-night festivites, art galleries galore, and delicious stewed oxtail. The neighborhood is called Little Haiti, and it might just be the best cultural scene in Miami. Nestled in Little Haiti's design district is a wonderful art gallery and performance space named after the Haitian city of Jakmel. On display is the vodou art of JudePapalokoThegenius. But it is much more than an art gallery; it is an unofficial cultural center for the Haitian community. In November 2005, it was the site for a multi-day celebration of Fet Gede, the Vodou festival for the sacred dead.

Three nights' worth of drumming and dancing are captured here on this 2-disc DVD set. The feature title is the final ceremony, "The Night of Bawon Samdi." It has a run-time of almost 90 minutes, English subtitles for the Creole lyrics, and a secondary audio track with explanatory commentary by Jan Sebon!

Principal performers include "Ton Ton" Laguerre, "Ti Rouj" Senatus, and Yatande Boko, but dozens of other musicians appear as well. Special thanks to all the musicians and dancers, JudePapalokoTheGenius, and Jan Sebon!
