In Haiti, there is one band that has seen it all: Septentrional. For six decades this 20 piece band has been making beautiful music- a fusion of Cuban big band and Haitian vodou beats, and turns out thousands of fans each time it plays. This film offers a deeper understanding into the survival of Haitian culture and Septentrional through the country’s turbulent history.
