When Big Night in Little Haiti began three years ago, Rara Kuyu invited the organizers to a large gathering at his studio, to make sure that rasin music had a part of the series. What a group – top locally-based dancers, musicians, artists. Rara Kuyu and his 15-member Universal Soul Love group launched Big Night with a bang, setting the tone for an amazing monthly night of music. Now we celebrate the 3rd Anniversary, and welcome back to the stage one of Miami’s artistic anchors.

A night of rara and roots to celebrate a good Friday at Big Night. Rara Kuyu and Universal Soul Love have created an massive production of roots music and dance. Born in Port-au-Prince, Kuyu is a gifted painter, muralist and musician. If you’ve been to Tap Tap, you’ve seen his beautiful murals. The band, featuring performance and dancers, is anchored by a commitment to Haitian percussion and musical exploration.

This month is your last chance to catch James Brutus Art’s featured artist Installation wall at the space!

Cog Nomen will be back with us this month, playing their electronic psychedelic tunes around 5-6pm and DJ ACKDADDY will be handling the decks in between sets.

Also just confirmed, Los Chamos Food Truck will also be making their triumphant return to Average Joe with their mouthwatering arepas and empanadas out front!
