Jonathan Michel: L’Ouverture

With bassist Jonathan Michel, saxophonist Godwin Louis, vocalist/flutist Melanie Charles, pianist Willerm Delisfort, and drummer Rodney Ruckus.

L' Ouverture is a collective of musicians with a familial, social, or artistic connection to Haïti, celebrating its rich music and culture along with that of the African Diaspora. Curated by bassist Jonathan Michel, L' Ouverture's name refers to both the leader of the Haïtian Revolution, Toussaint L'Ouverture, and the word's literal meaning:—“The Opening”—suggesting that the group serves as"an opening for those outside the culture to experience the music and stories of the Haïtian people… and to inspire those who are from the ‘motherland’ but are physically away to keep Haïti in their hearts, minds, and actions.” (Afropop Worldwide) Featuring some of the finest young voices in live music, including multiple Jazz at Lincoln Center headliners, this is L’Ouverture’s debut performance at Dizzy’s Club.
