Lenelle Moïses Ache What Make braids sensuous odes, urgent prayers, layered songs and bright ritual. Whether she’s talking about post-earthquake Haiti, conjuring Michael Jackson, or recounting her run-in with a skinhead on a crowded city train, Moïse shares intricate stories of creative resilience, stubborn compassion and death-defying love. Ache What Make invokes brilliant ancestors, current luminaries, and fleeting foes to celebrate a receptive heart in all its chipped or chipper wakefulness.
