Episode Description
Tuesday, Feb 12, 2013 - 6:00 AM    "Haiti: One Day, One Story/The Other Side of the Water: The Journey of Haitan Ra Ra Band" Haiti: One Day, One Story - Haitian-American filmmaker Michele Stephenson visits Haiti six weeks after one of the world's most devastating earthquakes to document the personal stories of the Haitian people. The Other Side of the Water: The Journey of Haitan Ra Ra Band - On Sunday nights during the summer, thousands of people gather in Brooklyn's Prospect Park to watch a motley band of young musicians carrying traditional drums, bamboo tubes and four-foot-long pressed-tin horns. They play Ra Ra music - a mix of Carnival, vodou ceremony and grassroots protest - which originally served as a voice for the slaves in their revolt against the French and of those struggling against ongoing dictatorships in Haiti.
