Gashford Guillaume and Jean Chardavoine, two authentic musicians from the Haitian jazz world have come together to give you a show like no other. Gashford Guillaume, musician, producer, composer whose goal is to raise Haitian jazz music around the world, grew up in a family of musicians and faith, the knowledge he received from school and at home made him well packed with discipline, respect and professionalism. In a country where we have a deficiency on lyrics and melody, or we may say in a country where talented artists are discouraged and sucked by the lack of opportunities. We need people who believes in their dreams and goals.
The leader of the band Mozayiz has shared the stage with many Haitian and foreign artists including Emeline Michel, James Germain, Beethovas Obas and Tania Synval. He has also participated in the production of several projects with well known artists and musicians from Haiti, USA, Paris and the West Indies. Working on his first album, Gashford takes time to put together an unforgettable show to satisfy your soul, spirit and body. On Saturday, November 26, 2016 at the Shapeshifter Lab in Brooklyn, NY you will have the opportunity to appreciate the finesse of Haitian Creole jazz by an experienced musician and passionate about great music.
