Haitian Party Music at Earth Sky Time Community Farm
Join Earth Sky Time Community Farm at 5 p.m. on Sunday, August 4, for an evening of Haitian party music, wood-fired pizza and fun on the farm! Lakou Mizik is a multigenerational collective of Haitian musicians formed in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake. The group includes elder legends and rising young talents, united in a mission to honor the healing spirit of their collective culture and communicate a message of pride, strength and hope. Music is at the core of Haiti’s sense of identity, and Lakou Mizik keeps the tradition alive, narrating the world through music made in neighborhoods, villages and refugee camps. Their influences draw from African and French Caribbean traditions, Vodou spirituality and street party horns. Lakou Mizik draws from Haiti’s deep well of creative strength to shine a celebratory light on their often misrepresented homeland. Rootbrew is a super funky jam band based in New Paltz, N.Y. Their influences span the globe and they always bring the party.
Earth Sky Time will be making pizzas with their homegrown toppings on the famous double-decker bread bus. The cash bar will feature local craft beer, kombucha and Ginger Libation. Tickets are $15 or $10 for students/farmers; kids are free. Earth Sky Time Farm is located at 1547 Main Street in Manchester. In the event of rain, the concert and fun happens inside the barn.
