Orchestre Septentrional Promo

I had the distinct pleasure to work on a photo/video shoot for Orchestre Septentrional in Ottawa this weekend. The band has a rich and lasting history…

For six decades this 20-piece band has been making beautiful music, …turning out thousands of fans each time it plays.

The band is also featured in a documentary, When The Drum Is Beating, directed by Whitney Dow. It will première at Tribeca Film Festival this month.

When The Drum Is Beating explores Haiti’s complex past and present through the music of the country’s oldest and best-known band and the memories of its founder and leader, Ulric Pierre-Louis.

There will be screenings at Hot Docs in May for those who can make it out! View the Facebook page for more about the film.
