SOUND THE TANBOU: HAITIAN EPILOGUE+ CLARION CALL

  • African Heritage Cultural Art Center 2121 Northwest 62nd Street Miami, FL, 33147 United States (map)

Join us for the opening of Isaie "Zeek" Mathias' exhibition of photography at Miami's African Heritage Cultural Art Center.  

These photos explore the ramifications of the tango (drum) and it's influence on Haitian culture and self-perception. The tambour is a persistent link -  a telegraph that stretches over the dark Atlantic waters reminding us – connecting us all. A time capsule encompassing all time. Containing all futures where again - there are open fields, happy children, speaking our language, remembering our ancestors, moving ever forward towards that compass point. The tanbou.
