Michael Brun – a Haitian born artist / DJ / musician – in conjunction with Artists for Peace and Justice (a non-profit organization founded by Oscar winning Director Paul Haggis) and Chokarella Radio have unveiled a festival along the crystal clear waters and sandy beaches of Haiti, with all proceeds going back to Haiti’s premier music school, The Audio Institute.
Joining Brun will be Haitian performers J. Perry, BelO, Tonymix, Bullet, Gardy Girault, and DZgot, all doing their party to highlight Haitian influences in music. Gardy Girault is a Pioneer of both raratech and konpatech – sub genres specific to Haitian culture, while DJ Tonymix is considered to the the island’s biggest DJ.. All the proceeds from GA tickets will go towards directly to funding all scholarships for the class of 2017 at the Audio Institute in Jacmel, Haiti. Check out a quote below;
“The message of this event is to show that the students were able to create a career for themselves through education and working together to make Wherever I Go possible. Through the success of the song we were able to host this festival, which will be funding future generations of students and artists in the country. I want people to see this not as charity but as a way to empower these students to create livelihoods through hard work.” – Michael Brun
