iciHaiti - Diaspora : Brooklyn and Montreal, Traveling exhibition in tribute to Toto Bissainthe
After Port-au-Prince, Cap Haitien, Paris, Fort de France and Miami, it is the turn of Brooklyn and Montreal, to receive the traveling exhibition "An'n ale" which pays homage to Toto Bissainthe (1934- 1994), as part of Black History Month.

In Brooklyn, the Haiti Cultural Exchange is the host of the exhibition, which will be opened on Friday February 7, during which a concert will also take place featuring Talie, Nathalie Joachim and Riva Précil. As part of the Diaspora NOW program of the "Haiti Cultural Exchange", the latter will perform pieces from the Toto Bissainthe repertoire with new arrangements.

The exhibition will remain until February 12, then will go to Montreal, invited by "Vues d'Afrique", whose president Gérard Le Chêne, longtime friend of Toto Bissainthe once again wanted to pay tribute to him (after having had a place named "Toto Bissainthe" avenue Van Horne in Montreal almost 20 years ago). The exhibition will be presented at the Center St Pierre from February 15.

Recall that "An'n ale" is a production and realization of the Haiti Jazz Foundation, which tries through twenty video testimonies and forty scene photos, to paint a portrait of this extraordinary woman, and retrace his artistic journey which led him from Haiti, to Paris, passing through Africa, the Indian Ocean, North America and the Caribbean. After 30 years of exile, Toto Bissainthe returned to Haiti in 86 where she tried in vain to enroll professionally, she died in 1994, in Petion-Ville.
