N Street Music will host a benefit house concert for the children of Haiti on Saturday, March 31. The concert will feature a live band — T-Rosemond and the Ital Souls — a DJ, a silent auction and a Haitian art sale.

Proceeds will benefit Zanmi Lakay, a grassroots group dedicated to improving quality of life for current and former street children in Haiti. The organization provides educational and economic opportunities as well as resources that help these children while they are homeless and transitioning off the streets.

Rising Caribbean star Rosemond Jolissaint is known as T-Rosemond. He grew up in Cap Haitien and began singing in the streets to entertain the homeless children. His music resonated with the people’s struggle and they voted him champion of Haiti’s first Digicel Rising Stars contest.

T-Rosemond now lives in Northern California but maintains his resolve to help the people of Haiti. His Ital Souls band performs original songs in Haitian Kreyol and English as well as roots reggae and the occasional contemporary pop tune.

The evening also will feature Davis native Joe Wisgirda, “Joe Daddy,” a producer and sound engineer, and DJ Wokstar from Sacramento dubbed “the alchemist of reggae dancehall.”

The fun begins at 9 p.m. at the N Street Cohousing Common House, 716 N St. in Davis. A donation of $10 to cover the artists’ travel expenses and $10 toward Zanmi Lakay is suggested.

Donations of supplies for the children also are encouraged, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, travel-size shampoo/conditioners, new adult T-shirts (no extra-large), Afro combs, vitamin C candy, EmergenC vitamin packets, small notebooks, pens, decks of cards, mini-dominos, heavy-duty gallon-size freezer ziplock bags, new make-up and nail polish, beach balls and colored chalk.

Donors will be eligible to win prizes of potted fruit trees, glass works, coffee, massages, Haitian art, photographs and construction credit.

Zanmi Lakay, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, also is soliciting donations for the second annual Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto, a summer photo camp for children and a community exhibition in July.

Items needed include digital cameras, AA batteries, printer and ink cartridges and photo paper. For details on the specific needs, contact Jennifer Pantaléon at (650) 359-6225 or www.ZanmiLakay.org.
