Haitian Afrobeat artist Wesli will perform on the Levitt VIBE stage at Riis Park on July 20th as part of the International Latino Cultural Centers newest summer concert series.
Born Wesley Louissaint in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, this Montreal based singer-songwriter and producer unites a large cross-section of Montreal talent, his music linking Haitian voudou and rara with Twoubadou roots, Afrobeat and reggae. Since being crowned the Revelation Radio-Canada for 2009–2010, Wesli has toured across North America, Haiti, Colombia, Brazil, and Europe, and participated in WOMEX, Mundial Montréal and Cape Verde’s Atlantic Music Expo.
