Pro shot videos from Kanpe Kanaval

Tidal has posted three videos from Kanaval Kanpe where Win, Régine and Richard performed with David Byrne and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The profits from the night all going to Kanpe. Here’s what Tidal said to introduce these videos:

Back in February, the biting cold of the Canadian winter was temporally masked by the warmth of Haiti’s carnival season.

Co-hosted by Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne and actor Rainn Wilson (The Office, Backstrom), the fourth edition of KANPE KANAVAL was held in Montreal in celebration of Haitian culture and solidarity.

The one-day festival included performances by special guest David Byrne (Talking Heads) and Arcade Fire members Régine Chassagne, Win Butler (as DJ Windows 98) and Richard Reed Parry. Other performers included French Canadian singer-songwriter Gardy Fury, New Orleans’ renowned Preservation Hall Jazz Band, poet-rapper Saul Williams, Haitian hip-hop artists Vox Sambou and Fwonte, along with other musicians and dancers from Haiti’s rara festival tradition.

TIDAL is proud to host three exclusive videos from KANPE KANAVAL 2016, including a film of highlights from all the performances and and full live sets from both Preservation Hall Jazz Band and David Byrne with members of Arcade Fire and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

All profits of KANPE KANAVAL go toward the KANPE program, which provides tools, training and support for Haiti’s most vulnerable families by achieving sustainable financial autonomy by addressing interconnected pillars of health, nutrition, housing, education, agriculture and leadership.
