Banned Haiti artist Don Kato weighs carnival invite | The Miami Herald


haiti carnival“It will be difficult for me as prime minister not to let Don Kato go out,” Prime Minister Evans Paul told the Miami Herald in an interview before his office made an official announcement via Twitter and in the Haitian media.

The no-strings attached invitation, as Paul tweeted, was one of his first acts as prime minister since being sworn-in last month.

Gregory Saba, the head of the National Carnival committee, which is organizing the three-day pre-Lenten celebration that finally returns to Port-au-Prince on Feb. 15, 16 and 17, confirmed that Kato “has officially been put on” as one of the 16 bands invited to perform their beat-throbbing Carnival méringues on floats moving through the crowd on the Champ de Mars in front of the grounds of the razed presidential palace. via | The Miami Herald.
