The cultures of Brittany and Garifuna meet in a special evening of poetry, dance and musical exchange between the musicians and dancers of bagad and cercle with musicians and dancers of the vibrant community of Garifuna living in NYC.
March 11 to April 12th is celebrated as Garifuna American Heritage Month in the State of New York.
On March 11th 1797, the Garifuna were exiled from their homeland Yurumein (St. Vincent and the Grenadines), and landed on Roatan an island off the coast of Honduras on April 12th 1797.
The coming together of the Bretons and the Garifuna is a giant footstep to show the world how two cultures can collaborate/coexist and fuse their musical skill to create Fest Noz Fedu!!!
