    Rah Rah Band, Quality Recycled Metal Art, Limited Edition Craftsmanship 23 x 23

    Roving musical bands called “rah-rahs” operate during the period from New Year’s Day through Carnival. A charming piece of original folk art that can be enjoyed during the Christmas holidays for years to come.

    Metal drum art is the sustaining life source of Croix-des-Bouquets, the town outside of Port-au-Prince where the tradition of metal art was born. Companies from the capital used to dump empty metal drums in Croix-des-Bouquets, with other industrial waste. In the 1940’s a local blacksmith, Georges Liautaud, took the metal drums and began combining them with iron bars to make elaborate metal crosses. His ingenuity turned waste into something useful that has become a new uniquely Haitian craft tradition.
