The musically impressive Godwin Louis is a Haitian-American with a love for the rhythms and melodies of his motherland, who is on a quest to trace the roots of jazz. The saxophonist has traveled to over 100 countries in the study of the African musical diaspora. His findings inspired Global, a far-sweeping and personal debut album, which could also be seen as his manifesto.
For this performance, Godwin brings a unique Caribbean island-inspired perspective to a jazz concert celebrating Haiti’s indigenous sounds and powerful grooves.
Godwin Louis, alto saxophonist, was born in Harlem, New York, and began playing saxophone at age nine. Godwin grew up in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and Port au Prince, Haiti.
