With a dancer’s grace, Riva Nyri Précil moves between Haiti’s spiritual and artistic traditions and a striking, worldly perspective forged in Brooklyn. Born in New York but raised in Haiti, her visual and sonic world is profoundly hybrid and utterly beautiful. Précil’s works springs from Racine, a contemporary iteration of the Vodou songs, rituals, drumming, and movement designed to engage the spirit world to bring healing or ward off negative events and energies. Racine incorporated rock; with her band Bohio Music, Précil folds additional elements into racine: vocal jazz, soul, touches of R&B.
