For the second year in a row Krewe du Kanaval is back! This year, there’s a new track “Iko Kreyòl” from Lakou Mizik and 79rs Gang featuring Win Butler and Regine Chassagne (Arcade Fire) and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. “Iko Kreyòl” is a re imagined track of the classic New Orleans song “Iko Iko” which shows the cultural union of Haiti and New Orleans with musical influences of both cultures on display. Krewe du Kanaval is annual event that supports the Kanpe organization in Haiti (http://kanpe.org) as well as the Preservation Hall Foundation in New Orleans (https://www.preshallfoundation.org/).
