Jan Sebon’s group Kazak International is a unique fusion of rasin (Haitian Roots music), jazz, political commentary, and electric stage presence. They have been voted Miami’s “Best Haitian Band” in the New Times for three consecutive years. Sebon founded Kazak in 1985 to define the Haitian experience with his unique voice and life experiences. He has received prestigious National Performance Network commissions for several programs. His most recent CD, Haiti A Love Story, included a collaboration with DJ Le Spam created as a fundraiser for Haitian earthquake relief.

Global Caribbean III: Haiti Kingdom of This World, is an Art Basel-sanctioned exhibition that has come to Miami from the Haiti pavilion at the Venice Biennale, presented by the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance. The exhibit, curated by Edouard Duval-Carrie, is a major project that showcases 18 important contemporary Haitian artists. The show fills the gallery at Little Haiti Cultural Center, and expands into the neighboring Alliance.
