Meet us at Port-au-Prince – a crossroads for those who love Haiti, her culinary and artistic offerings, as well as the arts and culture beyond her shores. Indeed, we aim to be a true “port” where the world intentionally collides! Next up in our music series, we present to you The Reginald Cyntje Group.
Recording artist Reginald Cyntje (born in Roseau Dominica, raised on St. Thomas, USVI) is an award-winning professional musician, composer, producer, and educator. He is active on the Washington DC music scene. Currently, he leads his own groups and works as a sideman in numerous bands. He is also the founder/owner of Jegna School of Music, LLC, a school that provides music lessons, workshops and mentoring concerts for intergenerational students; the founder and creative director of Cyntje Music, LLC, a one-stop music boutique that includes booking, curating and assisting artists; the author of Stepping Stones: 15 studies in improvisation; and a professor of music at Montgomery College. He has toured the US, Europe, South America, and the Caribbean and appeared on over 20 recordings including four of his own.
His band, The Reginald Cyntje Group, blends Jazz, Afrobeat, and Caribbean music to create a unique musical experience. The band mixes art and activism to inspire social change through song.
