Orchestra for Life

Saturday, April 2, 2016

FIAF Florence Gould Hall

The vibrant, high-energy sounds of DBR and DJ Val-Inc take over Florence Gould Hall in a celebratory, exclamatory closing night of the Tilt Kids Festival. The electrifying concert brings kids and parents into the action, inviting them to move and sing along with this Orchestra for Life.

Having carved a reputation for himself as an innovative composer, performer, violinist, and band leader, Haitian-American artist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) melds his classical music roots with his own cultural references and vibrant musical imagination.

Val Jeanty (DJ Val-Inc), the granddaughter of a Haitian Mambo (Voodoo priestess), has created a distinctive style of music weaving electronica and Haitian and African Voodoo rhythms.

Together they are DUO1804!

Orchestra for Life will be preceded by an interactive workshop at FIAF on the morning of April 2 at 11am.

Running Time: 65 minutes
