iciHaiti - Culture : First Edition of the «GEDE FEST» Festival
From October 25 to November 3, 2018, will be held the first edition of the Festival "GEDE FEST" organized by the cultural directorate of the Hotel Oloffson. This is an original event that combines arts, culture, history, gastronomy, bringing the group RAM of Haiti, the group Preservation Hall Jazz Band to the forefront thanks to the support of the Preservation Hall Foundation and the famous Chef Donald Link of New Orleans.

"GEDE FEST" will take place in Port-au-Prince and Jacmel in the wake of the Day of the Dead, a symbolic moment of strong Haitian culture and the twin sister city of New Orleans.

With a varied program "GEDE FEST" will offer 9 days of cultural immersion to festival-goers : conferences on historical-cultural relations between Haiti and New Orleans, 3 musical concerts offered by the artists of the RAM group, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Arcade Fire, as well as other surprise guests; a parade of rara and Second Line bands; 2 free demonstration and tasting days offered by Chef Donald Link and other Haitian chefs; an exhibition of works of art by the famous Haitian sculptor André Eugène, music workshops and a dance master class led by Isabelle Morse.

This should allow the two communities of Haiti and New Orleans to rediscover their historical and cultural roots and maintain relations of solidarity and friendship, but also to generate investment in trade and tourism.
