Event Details

Global Arts Project's free ArtScape Concert Series presents Chardavoine's Creole Jazz Project May 15 in Collins Park, Miami Beach from 2-5 PM, in celebration of Haitian Flag Day. Dr Ed Calle's Student Jazz Ensemble will open as part of our Educational Outreach Program, and the Haitian Arts and Culture for Children dance troupe provides added entertainment. A farmer's market provided by the Market Company rounds out the day with delicious food and refreshments.

Haitian-born but Brooklyn-bred, Chardavoine has covered the gambit of musical styles through the waves of his guitar. He is a great musician, a talented artist and a refined professional. He represents the best of modern music and the future of jazz. This amazing guitarist is a concrete manifestation of what is called "Haitian jazz" a new genre emerging in jazz today. He is talented not only as an excellent musician but also as a great creative and seasoned arranger. His music has been described as "Funky jazz that is played with soul; it's lyrical, it's instrumental, it's guitar oriented in the style of George Benson, and it's lyrical in the style of Stevie Wonder."

Coming from New York for this free performance, he will be accompanied by Mike Levine( keyboard), Seth Merlin( trumpet), Kenneth Jimenez( bass) Jerry Jerome ( drums), and Ernst Jean-Baptiste on Haitian drums.

Global Arts Project, Inc. is deeply grateful to the LeRoy Schecter Foundation for their generous support as Presenting Sponsor for this concert.
