Baristanet: Fifth Annual Concert For Haiti Features Emeline Michel


This year’s concert will feature Emeline Michel, a Haitian singer-songwriter who has been called “The Joni Mitchell of Haiti.” Her songs merge native Haitian compas and rara with jazz, pop, bossa nova, and samba. She has performed internationally at major venues and festivals, including Carnegie Hall, Montreal Jazz Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, and many more.

Also performing will be Montclair High School’s Passing Notes a cappella group, Big Mamou (Zydeco), Zing Experience (Haitian roots, rock and reggae), Jazz House Kids, Montclair’s Oxygen Box Band, and a group featuring Cantor Meredith Greenberg, Leora Perlman and Bob Mellman from Temple Ner Tamid, along with Eva Goldfarb and Rob Maskin. via Baristanet
