Mark your calendars to join the MFK team and our host, Jeff Civillico, on February 19, 2022 at 6:30 PM (CST) for an exciting evening of updates on our work and plans for the future. We are deeply grateful for the partnership of our donors and friends who make our mission possible.
What is rara? Rara is a form of festival music that originated in the late 1700s for street processions that took place as a reminder to the Haitian people that no matter how difficult their current situation was, there were still reasons to be grateful. In order to gain independence, Haitian slaves fought literally during the Haitian Revolution and culturally, through art, music and dance forms. The Rara tradition is still alive and well in Haiti, and continues to represent the strength and spirit of the country.
