On Saturday Februray 27th, WUSB will be focusing it's attention on the music and culture of Haiti. Last month, on January 12, a devastating earthquake struck southern Haiti leaving a catastrophic payload. Buildings were grounded, power lines were destroyed and many lives were lost. Many survivors have been left injured and homeless. It was the most powerful Earthquake to hit Haiti in over a century. An air of chaos is still present in the country, where recovery is slowly beginning to take form.
This is where you, the WUSB listener, can lend a hand. All day and night on Saturday, WUSB DJs and guests will be playing Haitian music and discussing all aspects of the Haitian culture. Join us as we take you through a magical journey of musical richness and cultural depth that illustrate its history and will drive the future of Haiti. We will be urging you to donate money to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund , Yele Haiti and the American Red Cross .
