The afternoon kicks off at 3 p.m. with DJ KUMI who will spin before the main performance by Haitian Master Drummer and Roots music legend Sanba Zao.
Zao, who was born Louis Lesly Marcelin, comes to Miami from his native Haiti where he is a professor at L’Ecole National des Arts, Haiti’s national arts school and also runs an elementary school Bazilo Ecole Communautairei. He has devoted his life to promoting his country’s culture and music. The elementary school was one of the first to open after Haiti’s devastating earthquake in 2010.
