Arts & Entertainment

The brainchild of NYC drummer/percussionist/composer Ches Smith, We All Break features pianist Matt Mitchell, saxophonist Miguel Zenón, bassist Nick Dunston, vocalists Sirene Dantor ReneTossie Long and Lalin St Juste, and master drummers of Haitian Vodou Daniel BrevilMarkus Schwartz, and Fanfan Jean Guy Rene. Internationally known as a NYC-based percussionist and composer-performer, Smith’s dedication to Haitian Vodou began more than twenty years ago. Hired to accompany a Haitian dance class, he was immediately taken with the art form. Formal study in New York and Haiti followed, which led to folkloric performances and Vodou ceremonies. For the last 12 years he has worked a variety of gigs in the Haitian communities of NYC, Gonaives, and Paris in tandem with his career in jazz and creative music.
