Fanm d'Ayiti

Nathalie Joachim with Spektral Quartet

A new evening-length work created by flutist and composer Nathalie Joachim of Flutronix, Fanm d’Ayiti (Women of Haiti) is a celebration of some of Haiti’s most iconic yet under recognized female artists, through new musical arrangements and compositions for flute, string quartet, vocals, and electronics seamlessly interwoven with recorded interviews telling stories of political exile, cultural affirmation, and independence.

At the same time, the project is a deeply personal exploration of Joachim’s Haitian heritage, featuring original songs incorporating the recorded voices of Joachim’s grandmother and the girls choir of her family’s home farming village of Dantan. This evening, Joachim will be joined by renowned chamber ensemble Spektral Quartet, making their second appearance at CPA.
