Destination Guadeloupe Festival 2009
November 17-22
Casa Frela Gallery, Zinc Bar & S.O.B.’s

From November 18 - 22, a host of tastemaking venues focus their attentions on the wondrous French Caribbean islands that make up Guadeloupe, the inspiration for the 2nd Annual Destination Guadeloupe Festival.

Wednesday 18: An Wonn La (In The Circle), an exhibition of onetime political prisoner Joel Nankin's mixed-media paintings opens the Destination Guadeloupe Festival uptown at Casa Frela Gallery, one of the cultural bright spots in Harlem's Mount Morris Historic District.

Friday 20: The music portion of the festivities kicks off in two hot spots: master Gwo-ka drummer François Ladrezeau (also known for working with tenor sax titan David Murray) gets the party started at Zinc Bar, while soulful veteran Jeff Joseph hits S.O.B.'s, with the backing of Panik, a versatile Caribbean band whose skill at zouk, biguine, compas, reggae, salsa and much more promises to make them festival MVPs.

Saturday 21: The group Kriyolio debuts at Zinc Bar, offering the seamless blend of urban and island flavors that Guadeloupeans call Gwada Jazz.

Sunday 22: All of the aforementioned stars return to S.O.B.'s for the evening's sprawling MAIN EVENT, and to boost the energy level even higher, Luc Leandry, the King of Zouk, headlines along with the Divas of Zouk, Joëlle Ursull and the sultry Jocelyne Labylle, who has also taken France by storm.

Venues: Casa Frela Gallery, Zinc Bar & S.O.B.’s

Emeline Michel
November 14th
Joe’s Pub

Emeline Michel is the reigning queen of Haitian song. A captivating performer, versatile vocalist, accomplished dancer, songwriter and producer, Emeline has recorded and appeared on concert stages throughout the Caribbean, Europe, North & South America, and Africa for the past 15 years, including Joe's Pub in the Park and GlobalFEST.

Singing both in French and Haitian Creole, Emeline is a member of a new generation of Haitian musicians, beloved by Haitians for combining traditional rhythms with social, political and inspirational content. She has won numerous awards in her native country, including Haiti's Musique en Folie awards for Best Haitian Album and Best Production of the year 2000 for her last album, Cordes et Armes.

On her latest album Rasin Kreyol (Creole Roots), Emeline's compositions emphasize complex themes, conscious lyrics, and a broad array of musical styles, including the native Haitian "compas", "twoubadou" and "rara" along with contemporary Caribbean, North and South American influences. Her songs express her faith and hope that her people's roots are so strong that they will rise above the political turmoil in her country and together build a strong, peaceful and prosperous Nation of the Sun.
