VODOU DRUM AND DANCE GROUP PRESENTS RISING SUN: CARNIVAL DAWN ON JANUARY
10 IN BROOKLYN
La Troupe Makandal, New York's center for Afro-Haitian drum and dance,
presents Part Three (Carnival Dawn) of Rising Sun: a Vodou Drama of Death
and Rebirth in Three Parts. Carnival Dawn marks the transition from
winter ceremonials to pre-vernal rites. Explore Haiti's Congo roots.
Feel the magic of the beautiful healing bags called pake (pah-kay) kongo.
Enjoy a visit from Queen Kongo, who cuts the rainbow cake and shares it
in honor of the Three Kings. Cap these festivities by dancing to beat of
the season's first Carnival band. Drumming and song arrangements by
award-winning Master Drummer Frisner Augustin—"a spectacular drummer,"
according to the New York Times. Admission at the door: $15 general, $10
