Haitian-born DJ and producer Michael Brun never misses a chance to pay tribute to his Haitian roots, mixing his blend of progressive house with authentic Haitian beats.
So with the biggest electronic dance music festival hitting Miami this week, Ultra at Bayfront Park, it seems only fitting that Brun, the biggest global act to come out of Haiti since Wyclef Jean, would have his two passions intersect in the cultural heart of Miami’s Haitian community — Little Haiti.
That’s perhaps the best way to explain the impetus behind Brun’s Bayo Block Party in Little Haiti this Friday at the Little Haiti Cultural Center Complex, 212 NE 59th Terr. Known more for hosting top Haitian konpa acts such as dISIP, KLASS, T-Vice and most recently NuLook, the cultural center has never hosted a dance music party – until now.
