PBS News Weekend

Season 10, Episode 76 of 99

International acts flock to the island nation to perform. Much of the news we hear about Haiti has to do with its recovery from the 2010 earthquake, its status as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, or the threat of Haitian refugees in the U.S. losing their Temporary Protected Status. But the island nation is also home to a burgeoning arts scene. One of the biggest events recently held there was the Port-au-Prince International Jazz Festival, or PAPJAZZ. This year, the festival hosted more than two dozen musical acts from around the world. NewsHour Weekend's Ivette Feliciano reports.
