After his performance John “Jube” Altino gets on the stage to introduce one of the pillars of the Haitian jazz music: Mozayik. The band opens the show with a great tune titled moonlight followed by some compositions of the band members. 16 years of dedication to the Haitian jazz music. Jazz with Haitian flavor, a good blend of jazz standard with Haitian twist. If you are talking about Haitian jazz, the band Mozayik is the first on the list.

Everyone  enjoyed the moment, no matter what your preference is in terms of music, you would love watching the band playing. One piece after another Mozayik kept the audience in the mood. With Eddie Bourjollie on guitar, Ted Cruz on piano, Gene Torres on bass,  Jean Guy Rene and Jean Mary Brignol on tambour (Haitian drums) and the band leader Gashford Guillaume on drums.
