Don't miss the final episode of this three-part series that explores the impact of NOLA's Haitian culture. 

Kanaval: Haitian Rhythms & the Music of New Orleans is a three-hour documentary hosted by Haitian-American and New Orleans-based artist and musician, Leyla McCalla, a founding member of Our Native Daughters & alumna of the GRAMMY award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops. Leyla’s work unearthing history and musical tradition, combined with her knowledge of cultural hybridization and her own identity as a Haitian-American have given her a unique voice and perspective. Her music reflects her eclectic and diverse life experiences, projecting respect for eloquent simplicity that is rarely achieved. The program airs its final episode Sunday, February 28 at 10 a.m. on AM 1370.
