With An extensive background and experience in music related field as a board member on the Committee of various Festivals, as Logistics Coordinator, Producer of concerts in the HMI / Haitian Music Industry, Artists Liaison, and Sponsorship Coordinator with substantial financial contributions.
“There is a lot of unexplored territory in the Caribbean,” reflects Chriss Rimpel, founder of CR Booking N Marketing “It’s quite surprising that there aren’t more of these uniquely impactful Haitian artists being presented on American stages, as there are many talented artists in Haiti and around the Haitian diaspora in places like Brooklyn, where RIVA is from.”
Rimpel grew up surrounded by this wealth of artistry, born in Haiti and growing up in New York, where she’s currently based. After several years working in the music business promoting and managing Haitian groups and festivals, she decided it was time to set up a boutique agency to develop and find new audiences for artists from the Caribbean.
