Brooklyn-based band Djarara plays the traditional Haitian street music known as rara, which features metal horns, bamboo trumpets, and drums. Every one of the 15 band members lost someone in the recent earthquake. They're continuing the music, and even rehearsing a new song to commemorate the tragedy. "Rara is life," says one of the musicians. Produced by WNYC's Janaya Williams.
