Global Notes: Chicago rapper Psalm One visits Haiti
The Carrefour Collaborative helps support Haiti’s music community. The organization was started by Chicagoan Paul Karner. The Carrefour Collaborative provides artistic grants to Haitian musicians and helps support a production studio in Leogane, Haiti. The idea is to help Haitian musicians record and produce their music in Haiti. Now, the group has begun a program to bring artists from Chicago down to Haiti to collaborate with Haitian musicians. Paul Karner, the founder of Carrefour Collaborative and Psalm One, a Chicago artist who recently traveled to Haiti with the Carrefour Collaborative, joins us to give us an update on how the project is going.
