Legendary Haitian roots band, RAM, is taking their sounds to North Carolina on Nov. 24 at The Grey Eagle in Asheville.

The Port-au-Prince-based band first made their appearance on the world scene in 1993 with Ibo Lele (Dreams Come True), a song with both English and Kreyòl lyrics that was included in the soundtrack for the major motion picture Philadelphia. RAM has released 7 albums, including Aïbobo.

Ancient African and Haitian drums intertwine harmoniously with electric guitar riffs and swinging Caribbean melodies, led by the entrancing singer, Lunise, all combine for a truly magical experience.

Though the band usually performs in Haiti, they have performed at the New Orleans Jazz Festival, the Cannes Film Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Roskilde Festival, as well as the Summer Series at Central Park in New York City.
