third generation Cubans of Haitian descent, they sing traditional and 
contemporary Haitian songs in Creole and Spanish.  The event will also be a 
fund-raiser to help the Coalition pursue its work against police brutality 
and to help the victimized fight for justice.

in the auditorium of Medgar Evers College
1650 Bedford Ave. (between Crown & Montgomery) in Brooklyn

Also performing will be famed Haitian vocalist Myriam Dorismé, 
and the  roots musical group Kongo.

On behalf of the Haitian community, the Coalition will present a plaque to 
representatives from the Cuban Mission to the UN, as an expression of our 
appreciation for the help Cuba has given Haiti in recent years.

Admission is $10.  
This will be Desandann's final performance in New York.  
Don't miss this opportunity to bid them a fine farewell!
