United Haitians In The UK (www.uhuk.com ) in conjunction with Sun Bailante (www.sunbailante.com ) invite all to their first Fundraising Event to raise much needed funds for our brothers and sisters who's lives have been devastated by the January 12th Earthquake.
For this special night the energetic ‘Ziloka’ band will perform live Gwoka, traditional music of the African Diaspora. Their unique drumming and dancing will transport you to the heart to the French Caribbean. Later Frenglish Connexion will set the stage in alight with their blend of Hip-Hop, Reggae and Soul. They have recently played to support Bennie Man, Admiral T and Saïn Supa Crew.
The Sun Bailante DJ’s will make it tropical mixing the hottest Haitian, Latin, African and Global sounds including hip-shaking Kompa, Zouk, Dancehall, Soca, Salsa, Reggeaton, Coupe Decale, Kizomba and Latin house.
Doors ar efrom 9pm to 3am and the entrance is £10 on the door all night. Please note that ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the proceeds from this event will go to shipping medical supplies, clothes and other provisions to our Haiti as well as re-building schools in the country.
UHUK is a charity with the goal to make a positive contribution in the development of Haiti, and to keep the Haitian culture alive in the United Kingdom. We will financially support worthwhile, non-governmental, and sustainable educational projects throughout Haiti with an emphasis on children’s school fees, uniforms and supplies.
Entering through a discreet entrance behind Angel tube station you will enter a secret world hidden in a Victorian warehouse home to art exhibitions, concerts and various private parties the latest one held by the film director Spike Lee.
