Haiti - Culture : Daniel Bernard Roumain in concert Saturday in Haiti
Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR), performer, virtuoso violinist and conductor of renowned [born in the United States of Haitian parents], is arrived Tuesday in Haiti [for the first time] to participate in the recording of the new album of Emeline Michel. He will be in concert at the FOKAL Saturday, July 30 at 6 pm.

Emeline Michel, who will be his guest at the concert dreamed to see one day DBR in concert before the Haitian public, on his homeland "DBR is between Haiti and America. It has a large technical training but he is also an artist with a soul. [...] Our young artists need this image of people living of perfection. It is a living example of virtuoso.
I absolutely wanted that the Haitian public discovers it because it is a true inspiration. More that never our young people need to see it. To exceed the limits and dare."

DBR did not know what to expect upon arriving in Haiti, like many who live outside, he was the victim of preconceived ideas that it is dangerous to stay in Haiti. But lets his intuition and his desire to connect with its origins, the artist decided to settle down in Haiti for about a week. "What they told me was enough to keep me in fear, away from this country, but what I see and feel since I arrived, is the energy of a nation that seeks to recover [...] Now I can talk of Haiti myself, because I came, I see the reality [...] Haiti has always been in my life through photos, videos, and throughout its history. But all these things can not replace my presence here."
