We at Ambyans Lakay (Francois Adrien of Pikliz.com and Jimmy Moise of Le Petit Club), along with the artists who performed Saturday would like to thank you all for your attendance Saturday night at the All White Extravaganza.
The artists are thankful to the audience and to the owners of Casa Campestre for their support and their well wishes. We all will continue to strive to bring you the best of our talent and the very best of our artistic, cultural souls. Yes indeed a heart-felt thank you to all who attended The all white party this past Saturday's event at Casa Campestre, April 4th, in Pembroke Pines, Florida. The night was buzzed with culture, multi-lingual poetry and jazz took center stage. For those who were unable to attend, stay tuned as we continue to bring you events of high caliber and culture in the very near future.
A heartfelt thank you to Francois and Jimmy for opening their doors and stage to us, the artists, and providing the upscale ambiance where our talents could be displayed. The restaurant was alive and buzzing as a shockingly large crowd of diverse patrons attended a cultural plethora of performance art. Standing room only capacity was evident as Underscore, Kristo, Jonathan Laurince, took our audience on an excursion and cultural adventure.
The event began with a warm welcome address by the multi faceted poet Makendal and the elegant Farah Larrieux. The event began with poet/painter Kristo, as he tantalized the audience's years with two original French poems. He was immediately followed by the dynamic and diverse spoken word poet/playwright Berwick "Underscore" Augustin. He dazzled the crowd with a touch of culture from a Christ centered spiritual perspective. Underscore is the founder of Island Faith Production Inc, a company that ministers to the masses through cultural projects such as theatre, spoken word poetry, music and other art forms. He has produced four spoken word CDs and a stage play, Libere Liberis on DVD. Island Faith Production Inc is also the proud parent of Diaspoart, a new line of signature Haitian Creole and English greeting cards full of cultural sentiments while still presenting the gospel of Christ. Check out www.islandfaith.com for your greeting cards, especially with mother's day around the corner. The company looks forward to a future that will fuse pieces of the arts, spirituality and multiculturalism into well-blended productions for the international community.
Marlene Villain reinforced Underscore's poems with a personal testimony of how God saved her life as she encouraged everyone to seek a personal relationship with her Savior. Soon after, the 2007 Haitian American Gospel Music's "Best Male GospelArtist of The Year,"
Jonathan Laurince blew winds of a potential legend into his trumpet. He was accompanied by piano player, Bouillon to form a forceful duo that infused Jazz and culture in every musical note.
Eventually Makendal got into the act and join the musicians on an impromptu masterpiece of a poem entitled "She". The thunderous applauses of the night vibrated the walls of Casa Campestre as the audience showed their appreciation for such an elegant and uplifting night. Finally Makandal and Farah Larrieux thanked Francois Adrien of Pikliz Productions and Jimmy Moise of Le P'ti Club for the standing room only event. Many thanks to all who continue to support these endeavors, those who came for the first time and will bring a friend next month and a thank you in advance for those who will come because they'd rather enjoy the live experience instead of reading about it!
Piklilz.Com and Lep'ti Club would like to thank everyone for their support to such a beautiful event. All of you were dressed to impress.
We would also excuse ourselves to those who couldn't get in because the place had reached its capacity. First come first serve!!!
