Drums, poetry and trance from Haiti’s vodou heartlands Chouk Bwa Libète are a traditional Haitian Mizik Rasin (‘roots music’) ensemble bringing together the essence of Haitian vodou. Their music rises in waves of percussion, vocals and dance, authentically inspired in the moment and communicating nothing but the unique joy of this shared spontaneity. With deep roots in the religious rites of West African Vodún, their repertoire blends traditional songs with compositions by lead vocalist and poet Jean-Claude ‘Sambaton’ Dorvil.
