Founded in Pétion-ville in 2001, supervised by the Caracoli association since 2010, the Follow Jah walking band multiplies their experiences of all kinds to explore the possibilities of the genre: animation for festivals, stage show, workshop for young public, collaboration with an American jazz saxophonist, a Malian DJ or a big band from Belgium!
