Philadelphia, PA, December 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Maribou Entertainment Group (MEG), a new entertainment and promotions company in the Philadelphia area, plans to improve the quality of Haitian events, promote the Haitian culture and expose it to different ethnicities. For their debut event on Dec. 21st, they have booked music icon, T-Vice to Philadelphia’s Theater of Living Arts. Various guests such as internet sensation, Haitian Jonas, Philadelphia’s Power 99FM’s DJ Diamond Kuts, Haitian artist IET and many more entertainment figures will also be in attendance.
Founders Clifford Raphael and Zdenka Pierre want to unite the Haitian people of Philadelphia while also supporting the many different projects that are already in place. “We want to host socio-cultural events and support upcoming artists by collaborating on their projects. We plan to sponsor different artists, events and anything we feel portrays our culture positively,” explains Clifford.
Despite the negativity and tragedies that have struck the country of Haiti, the people continue to strive and move forward in positive ways. Not only are Haitian people strong, but they continue to sing, dance and party throughout what most would consider terrible circumstances. Evidently, entertainment fuels Haitian people and inspires them to push on for the future. MEG’s mission is to provide events that promote the Haitian culture in a positive light and give the people something to look forward to.
“Our main focus is on exposing the beauty of Haiti. If you take notice, our logo is red and blue which are the main colors of the Haitian flag. Even our name, Maribou, is derived from 'marabou.' Marabou is an all natural Haitian woman which you can also see on our logo along with hearts that represent the love and unity we have for Haiti,” explains Zdenka.
