* background info on "Democracy in Haiti" Mixtape

Serving as the sister project to the upcoming Nomadic Wax documentary film,
"Democracy in Haiti," the Democracy in Haiti Mixtape highlights the political,
cultural and social issues facing Haitian youth after the earthquake that
struck the country in January 2010. The third film in the "Democracy In ..."
series, "Democracy in Haiti" presents to audiences Haitian youth who have been
active in the rebuilding of their country. In Haiti the youth make up the
largest percentage of the population, yet, their voice is often ignored in
discussions of political importance.

Serving as an outlet for Haitian youth to bring forth their voice, "Democracy
in Haiti" spotlights several young artists who have taken active roles in the
reformation of Haiti's cultural and political stature. Lena Jackson, the
Nomadic Wax Director of Photography for the "Democracy in Haiti" film, recently
returned to the country to document the events of the second round presidential
elections and further capture the voice of Haitian youth on film. "Democracy in
Haiti" helps audiences understand the important role Haitian youth must play in
the foundation of Haiti's political and social future. Featuring talent from
Haiti and the Haitian Diaspora around the world, the Democracy in Haiti Mixtape
brings together a diverse group of hip-hop artists contributing verses that
emphasize the socio-political issues currently facing Haitian society. As the
audio backdrop to the "Democracy in Haiti" film, the Democracy in Haiti Mixtape
encourages Haitian youth to stand up and take part in the successful rebuilding
of their nation's society.

The Democracy in Haiti Mixtape is mixed by DJ Nio of Zero Plastica and produced
by Magee McIlvaine of Nomadic Wax, Vox Sambou and DJ Nio. Mastered and
engineered by Dan Cantor of Notable Productions.
