Orchestre Septentrional D'Haiti a National Treasure

L'Orchestre Septentrional d'Haiti, the island's most venerable band, has been recording, touring, and playing for 66 years. Forging a pathway of its own, it has ignored common wisdom saying, to be relevant a band must adopt the latest music craze.

Septen, as the band is known by generations of fans, was launched in 1948 by merging two smaller orchestras.

The success of this venture saw the two groups and their two guests permanently joined in July of 1948.
