Haiti Cultural Exchange and Pelham Art Center present: Rhythms & Dances of Haiti with teaching artist Okai Fleurimont. Discover the traditional drum rhythms of Haiti during this interactive performance. After the music performance there will be a great workshop on making your personal flag or bandana lead by Rebecca Mills. Haiti Cultural Exchange is a nonprofit organization established to develop, present and promote the cultural expressions of the Haitian people. Seeking to raise awareness of social issues and foster cultural understanding and appreciation through programs in the arts, education and public affairs. See more at www.haiticulturalx.org Okai Fleurimont is a self-taught percussionist who discovered drumming at the age of five with two kitchen knives and a bucket. He was born in Brooklyn, from Haitian immigrant parents, and exposed to a variety of rhythms. What influenced him the most was hip-hop, pop music and beat boxing while also singing in the church choir and being the official Conga player for the Carnarsie High School band. Later, Okai developed an intimate connection with the djembe because of its variety of tones and then introduced this instrument to the hip-hop community. He is known as a percussionist, vocalist and rapper in several bands based in Brooklyn, all representing the music of the African Diaspora. As a lead vocalist and percussionist of Brown Rice Family, StringsNSkins and Underground Horns, Okai often travels all over the country and internationally. Okai built upon his innate musicality to develop a career as a professional musician and educator. The history of the Haitian drum goes back as far as the history of humans in Africa and the creativity that allowed people to make musical instruments. It is uncertain how old drum making is because its components decay rapidly. The earliest record of drum making in Africa goes back 5000 years. On the west coast of Africa, each ethnic group developed a unique rhythm to serve as a national anthem and there were additional rhythms for religious service, marriage, coming of age, government inaugurations etc. These practices are conserved in Haiti where drummers play various beats to identify different African Nations. Rebecca Mills is an artist, educator and art historian who teaches regularly at the Pelham Art Center. Her creative mind and bubbly energy will guide everyone towards making the best work they can make. We will be...

    Keller Celebrates Jerry Keller Williams Wednesday Aug 1, 2018 Doors: 6:30 PM Show: 8:00 PM 21 and over $30 (ADVANCE) $35 (DAY OF SHOW) Keller Williams released his first album in 1994, FREEK, and has since given each of his albums a single syllable title: BUZZ, SPUN, BREATHE, LOOP, LAUGH, HOME, DANCE, STAGE, GRASS, DREAM, TWELVE, LIVE, ODD, THIEF, KIDS, BASS, PICK, FUNK, VAPE, SYNC and RAW, those who have followed his career will know this. Each title serves as a concise summation of the concept guiding each project. GRASS, for example, is a bluegrass recording cut with the husband- wife duo The Keels. STAGE is a live album, and DREAM is the realization of Keller’s wish to collaborate with some of his musical heroes. THIEF is a set of unexpected cover songs, KIDS offers Keller’s first children’s record, PICK presents Keller’s collaboration with royal bluegrass family The Travelin’ McCoury’s, and RAW is a solo acoustic album. Each album showcases Keller’s comprehensive and diverse musical endeavors and functions to provide another piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is Keller Williams. Keller’s collaborative and solo albums reflect his pursuit to create music that sounds like nothing else. Unbeholden to conventionalism, he seamlessly crosses genre boundaries. The end product is astounding and novel music that encompasses rock, jazz, funk and bluegrass, and always keeps the audience on their feet. Since he first appeared on the scene in the early ’90s, Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. For most of his career he has performed solo. His stage shows are rooted around Keller singing his compositions and choice cover songs, while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. With the use of today’s technology, Keller creates samples on the fly in front of the audience, a technique called live phrase sampling or looping, with nothing pre-recorded. The end result often leans toward a hybrid of alternative folk and groovy electronica, a genre Keller jokingly calls “acoustic dance music” or ADM.” That approach, Williams explains, was derived from “hours of playing solo with just a guitar and a microphone, and then wanting to go down different avenues musically. I couldn’t afford humans and didn’t want to step into the cheesy world of automated sequencers where you hit a button and the whole band starts to play, then you’ve got to solo along or sing on top of it. I wanted something more organic yet with a dance...
