Details

Join the innovative Haitian DJ, music producer, and singer Gardy Girault on The Dance Floor for rara rhythms and electronic music. Girault built his reputation in the mid-2010s with a distinctive merging of rara rhythms and house music that he referred to as "rara tech." By the decade's end, he had created his own label and found international success, releasing numerous EPs and playing his custom blend everywhere from North America to Africa and the Middle East. Girault began his career in Port-au-Prince in 2008, though it was after the 2010 earthquake that he began to form his original style combining traditional Haitian forms like rara, konpa, and rasin with progressive and deep house beats. This sound could be heard on the 2012 EP Reminiscence Then and even more so on his 2015 debut album, Kiskeya.
