The Real Vodou: A Haitian Classical Music Concert – chicagotribune.com


As part of its One Book, Everybody Reads series, the Wilmette Public Library will present “The Real Vodou: A Haitian Classical Music Concert” on April 27 at 2:00 p.m. in the Library’s auditorium, 1242 Wilmette Avenue, Wilmette. At the program, Crossing Borders Music Collective will explore Haiti through music by presenting a string quartet concert of vodou (“voodoo”) songs and vodou-inspired compositions. Vodou formed the spiritual backbone for Haiti’s revolution, which was the largest, most successful slave revolt in history. The concert will present folk songs and music by Haitian composers who were inspired by vodou rituals, ceremonies, and practices. Audio and visual materials that offer additional insight into the rich vodou culture will round out the program. All ages are welcome. via – chicagotribune.com
