When The Drum is Beating (Whitney Dow | USA/Haiti | 84 min.)

Official Link: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/when-the-drum-is-beating/

Documents the Haitian band, Septentrional. For 60 years this 20 piece band has been making beautiful music — a fusion of Cuban big band and Haitian vodou beats – that turns out thousands of fans. Their extraordinary story is interwoven with the history of Haiti and how it went from being the first free black republic with a huge wealth of natural resources to a shattered country that cannot support its citizens.
