Event Description: “Brooklyn Arts Council's Folk Arts program, in collaboration with J'Ouvert City International and City Lore, present 'The Art & History of J'Ouvert: Steelband as Resistance.' We’ll kick off the celebration with a conversation with artists and activists about the history of steelpan movement — how it traveled from Trinidad, Harlem, and to Brooklyn — and where the future of the craft lies. Then, join us out on the plaza to experience the music and dance of J’Ouvert in all its pulsating colors — with steelbands, rhythm bands, mas bands, and limbo. Make your own mask, join a procession, and dance to Brooklyn’s top Caribbean musicians! Schedule includes: Introduction by BAC Folk Arts Director Christopher Mulé, J'Ouvert City International President Yvette Rennie, and Mervyn Taylor; Ray Allen and Dale Byam coordinating a discussion with Lennox Leverock on the History of the Steelpan, featuring a film excerpt of Charysse Tia Harper’s 'Panomundo,' Jesse Lampton and Oscar Williams demonstrating Crafting and Tuning, Kendall Williams on Arranging and Composing, Count Robin and Anthony Joseph on the History of Pan Yard Migration, Sandra Bell and Yvette Rennie on Strategies of Resistance for the preservation of J’Ouvert traditions ...” Read more: BAC-The Art & History of J'Ouvert
About J’Ouvert: “Brooklyn is home to the largest West Indian community outside of the Caribbean; nearly 20% of the borough’s population. Around Labor Day, the West Indian Day Parade attracts more spectators than any other event in the city, drawing close to 2-3 million annually. The evening before the Parade is J’Ouvert, a celebratory procession that runs two miles along Eastern Parkway--traditionally starting at 3 am (now at 6 am) and lasting to daybreak. J’Ouvert, from the French meaning 'break of day,' is described as a religious experience; the dance from dark to light before the West Indian Day Parade. Costumed bands and revelers wearing mud, paint, or festive attire doubling as commentary on sociopolitical injustices, dance through the streets until the daytime carnival commences. Unlike the electric sound systems that are signatures of the West Indian Day Parade, expressions for J’Ouvert revelers are steeped in traditional music (steelpan, Haitian rara), and dance and costuming (masquerade) ...” Read more: BAC-The Art & History of J'Ouvert
