320 Haiti Pictures - Racine Festival 2007, Downtown Miami

Last Saturday Haitians in Miami was dancing to the drumbeat of "Tanbou Lakay" at Racine Festival 2007. Bayfront Park was jam packed with Haitians and Haitian Americans to celebrate "Mizik Rasin".

See all 320 pictures of Rasin Festival 2007 here!


Racine Festival was great. The festival was hosted by Herntz Phanor of Planet Radio. Vwadezil had a great performance, so did Boukman Eksperians, and Nulook, Krezi Mizik, Rara Lakay, etc...

This year, Azor closed the evening with an amazing performance.


Are you afraid of Rasin music and Vodou?

I suspect some Haitians are a bit afraid when they hear the word Racine or Vodou.

Do not fear, Vodou is your culture, it is your religion, it is the only thing that links you to your roots back in Africa.

If you think Rasin or Vodou is Satanic, It's OK, I forgive you, after all that's what your Pastor or your priest wants you to believe.

Fortunately, you have a computer with internet access, information is now available at your fingertips, and you can do research in the comfort of your own home.

Ignorance is bliss, as they say. I just spent 3 days doing a research on Vodou. I will release my findings next week and I promise you, you will be shocked.
