ZILI MISIK in Wellfleet for OysterFest

Saturday October 13 at 8pm

There will be two great reasons to come to Wellfleet on October 13!  One is Oysterfest, and the other, a few hours later, is Zili Misik.  At 8pm, the exciting 7-women band Zili Misi take the stage at the Wellfleet Congregational Church and kick up some serious fun vibes with their soul satisfying eclectic mix of Afro/Caribbean/soul/world music.

This soul-satisfying and award-winning band is famous for playing on musical instruments from a dozen different world cultures and performing in English, Spanish and Kreyol.  The band leader, Kera Washington, had always used part of their repertory to showcase Haitian culture and traditions, and after the earthquake hit Haiti, the band used their reputation and fan base as a platform to publicize the tragedy, and help raise money for relief and recovery efforts on the island.  At that time the band started Project Misik, donating instruments to school children in Haiti.

Kera Washington’s love of Haiti goes back to her college days at Wellesley, where she befriended a Haitian professor who eventually taught her the art of hand drumming. Since then, her band has expanded to embrace many cultures and types of music, but she has not forgotten her starting point and to this day she and Zili keep Haiti at the forefront of their artistic work.

Come to the Wellfleet Congregational Church on Saturday, Oct. 13 and experience the joy that these seven women bring to their music, the excitement of Zili Misik!
