Rara comes to Indianapolis
On August 3 we brought the concept of the Haitian Rara to Indianapolis. With advice from our partners at Jacmel Arts Center and generous support from the Arts Council of Indianapolis, the Indiana Arts Commission, ROW and Fonseca Theater Company we celebrated our neighborhoods with music and community.
Rara is a Haitian street band that grows and evolves as it moves through the city playing traditional instruments. Raraâ€™s exist to celebrate the joy of living and unite communities to dance and sing away their troubles.
We hope to make this an annual event that celebrates the successes of our neighborhoods and sets out goals for the year to come. Thank you to everyone who joined us and we hope to see you next summer! Please enjoy some of the photos from the evening from Nicholas Poust Photography.
