Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
Haitian native Daniel Bernard Romaine (DBR) and Emeline Michel, Haiti’s queen of song – who emerged on the national radar after her appearance on the Hope for Haiti telethon – appear at the Triple Door for a rare collaborative performance melding classical, jazz, bossa nova and samba.
Having carved a reputation for himself as an innovative composer, performer, violinist, and band leader, Haitian-American artist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) melds his classical music roots with his own cultural references and vibrant musical imagination. Proving that he’s “about as omnivorous as a contemporary artist gets” (New York Times), DBR recently collaborated and performed with Lady Gaga on FOX’s American Idol. His accolades range from being voted as “America’s Assignment” on the CBS Evening News, to receiving praise as one of the “Top 100 New Yorkers” (New York Resident), “Top 40 Under 40” business people (Crain’s New York Business), one of the entertainment industry’s “Top 5 Tomorrow’s Newsmakers” (1010 WINS Radio), and spotlighted as a “New Face of Classical Music” in Esquire Magazine.
Named the “Joni Mitchell of Haïti”, Emeline Michel has emerged as the reigning queen of Haitian song. Her songs merge native Haitian compass and rara with jazz, pop, bossa nova and samba. A captivating performer, versatile vocalist, accomplished dancer, songwriter and producer, Emeline sings in French and Haitian Creole, and her world-wide concerts and seven CD recordings have catapulted to international acclaim.
DJ/composer Elan Vytal, aka DJ Scientific, combines precisely engineered hip-hop beats and scratched rhythms with classical and world music sounds, both live and sampled, creating a uniquely contemporary, yet accessible urban sonic experience. From dance clubs to concert halls, his crossbreed of musical genres and traditions is earning him critical acclaim and audiences worldwide.
