Bélo in concert
Haitian composer and guitarist Bélo (Jean Belony Murat) will give a free performance of his music in the Ruby Lounge of the Rubenstein Arts Center. His first album Lakou trankil (Quiet Streets) is treasured by Haitians because the songs explain and reflect the problems the country faces. Bélo is popular in Europe and Africa where he won the Discovery RFI Prime in April 2006. Bélo's musical approach is influenced by other Caribbean styles but mostly by reggae and jazz.
