Calling all souls to celebrate this Day of the Dead, Haitian style! Get in touch with the lwa (gods or spirits) of Gede – such as Baron Samedi, Papa Legba, Grann Brigitte and others – who guard the cemeteries and navigate the world between the living and the dead. Featuring two hours of mizik rasin (roots music) driven by the Vodoun rhythms and chants that honor the Gede. Music for the Masses invites you on an excursion of sound and rhythm. Discover the music of established and emerging artists, both signed and unsigned, on the international music scene. For the avid globe-hopper and armchair traveler alike. You might want to pack a map and a sandwich. Broadcast live from Catskill.
