Also, in attendance will be special invited guest The Minister of Culture, The Hon. Charles Maynard.
Nostrum Fabula, Latin translation for “Our Story,” will present a night of art, music and literary expressions, celebrating the heritage and stories of the separate yet united Bahamian and Haitian cultures.
This event is slated to be held at the historic Jacaranda House on Parliament and East Hill Street on Friday May 20th, 2011. Promptly beginning at 7pm, guests will come into a full artistic experience.

Music Entertainment will be provided by World renowned Haitian saxophonist Mr. “Bensax” Richardson Estimable and local DJ Michael Dupin will provide a fusion of Kompa and Goombay music to carry the night away.
