Haiti - Culture : IDB supports the project of Caracoli and Follow Jah
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has confirmed that the training project, of the musicians of the walking band Follow Jah, for interventions with young people, was retained as part of Cultural Development Program which is part of the IDB Cultural Center. The project of Caracoli and Follow Jah was retained among 867 proposals received by the IDB and is one of 45 projects supported in 25 countries.

This pilot project aims to train musicians in the walking band Follow Jah of Petion-ville. In the coming months, the musicians will receive various individuals, which will help them to formalize their knowledge on their practice and adapt them for their transmission to the young audience. They will be accompanied to develop a workshop combining theory and practice around the rara music and walking bands. This workshop will be put into practice with children of neighborhood Berthé, where the band walk resides. Finally, several feedback sessions will bring together local residents, the press, the authorities concerned and all those interested in heritage preservation and education of youth, for reporting on this work.

Note that the re-equipment of the walking band is an integral part of the project was made possible thanks to funds EWA of the French Community of Belgium, managed by FOKAL.
