Manno singing in Miamiphoto by Sharif Kouddous
This is Manno Charlemagne singing at the Tap Tap Restaurant in Miami. Sharif took this photo on his way to Haiti with the Democracy Now! crew. They will be reporting from there tomorrow.
Manno did the music for the film Bitter Can
e, which I made in 1983 along with Pennee Bender and Kim Ives. Manno watched all of our interviews then used the words from the interviews in the music he sang for the film. I don't think there are too many documentaries which have that quality of sychronized music track! For a while Manno was Mayor of Porte au Prince (during the Aristide years.)
