Zili Misik brings its multicultural sound to Stocker Arts Center

Elyria: Zili Misik brings its unique sound to Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center stage at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, February 14, 2009.


The eight women of Zili Misik find their heritage in five countries on three continents, including 23-year-old Krystal Johnson, who is a native of Cleveland.


Zili takes its name from Haitian spiritual entity, “Ezili,” who is envisaged as mother, lover, and warrior. Zili Misik’s songs are sensual, political, self-reflective, positive, and invoke love.

JoBeth Umali


The lyrics glide seamlessly from English to Kreyol to Portuguese to Spanish, spinning tales and visions of lives lived and yet to be. Powerful Haitian, Brazilian and West African rhythms infuse Zili Misik’s original creations and traditional folksongs.


Reconnecting Haitian mizik rasin, Jamaican roots reggae, Afro-Brazilian samba, Afro-Cuban son, and African American spirituals, blues, jazz and neo soul, Zili Misik honors their influences while creating a sound that is uniquely their own.


Zili Misik was founded by Kera M. Washington – an ethnomusicologist and educator in the Boston Public Schools, Northeastern University, and Wellesley College – who also serves as the composer and arranger of most of the songs for the group.


Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. To order tickets, call the Stocker Arts Center box office at: 440-366-4040, or order online at: www.lorainccc.edu/stocker
