BélO, Haitian-International artist, is gearing up to perform at the biggest world stage showcase event in North America, “globalFEST.” It is BélO’s first appearance in New York since the release of his latest cd, and he promises to bring to life “Haiti Debout” in a quite radical way to Webster Hall on Sun Jan 8, 2012 -performing at THE STUDIO from 7PM to 8PM. With the third album, “Haiti Debout,” BélO took a step further into the roots sound, exploring the Haitian “Rasin” rhythms and African flavor all the while finding Rock, Reggae, World beat influences. BélO will bring Haiti’s drum beat pulsation to the stage.
Expressing his excitement, BélO said: “I am humbled to be invited at globalFEST and to share the stage with so many talented artists from different parts of the world who are, just like me, crafting new sounds based on traditional music. I plan to enjoy every minute of the night and bring Haiti’s heart with me onstage.”
globalFEST showcase will begin on the heels of BélO’s 2012 U.S. outings, Friday Jan 13, 2012, in Orlando and Saturday Jan 14, 2012, at Artisphere in Arlington, VA.
