About This Performance

Note: This performance was originally scheduled for Wednesday, December 1.

The Society is pleased to present the Philadelphia premiere of Fanm d’Ayiti,  an evening-length work for voice, flute, string quartet, and electronics developed by composer/performer Nathalie Joachim. Fanm d’Ayiti is a celebration of some of Haiti’s most iconic yet under-recognized female artists, as well as an exploration of Joachim’s Haitian heritage. The project features original songs incorporating the recorded voices of Joachim’s grandmother and the girls’ choir of her family’s home farming village of Dantan; new arrangements of songs by some of the greatest known female voices in Haitian history; and recorded interviews with these artists about their lives fighting for social justice and uplifting the people of Haiti.
