Symbi Roots Bio
Rara is a uniquely Haitian horn and percussion-fueled festival music, whose massive processions are featured at street parties and carnival celebrations throughout Haiti and the diaspora. The music builds on a voudou tradition both celebratory and sacred – and is always a 'guy thing'. Enter Symbi Roots, the groundbreaking all-female rara band led by bandleader Dieuvela Etienne out of her cultural center in Port-au-Prince. The group presents rara in a fresh context, building on the traditions of the style and adding in elements of chanson, jazz and pop. The girls of Symbi Roots have joined ArcadeFire for a show-stopping finale at Jacmel Carnival, they have taken their unique show to France and the Caribbean, and now they make their US debut at TransAtlantic Festival
