Last week, our Executive Director, Joe Shaffer, returned to Cap Haitien to continue work on one of the Espwa projects near and dear to his heart. For years, he has been involved in sharing the beauty of Haitian choirs (read about our project here). On this trip, Joe recorded enough content to produce new albums for three of the choirs – “Gran Chorale,” “Chorale Lajenes,” and “Son De Soley.”
One of the ongoing needs for both Gran Chorale and Chorale Lajenes is the purchase of choir robes for their performances. Espwa gave support funds to each of the choir directors (Simon and Marirose) during the trip, but the choirs are still about $1000 short each. The funds will purchase robes for over 85 people. If interested in donating to this project, add a comment of “Choir Robes” to your donation on the full Razoo site here.
It was great working with Anne, Rosie, Nico, Manu, Eve, and Fannie of Son De Soley again. Listen to Son De Soley’s first album below:
