Charlot Lucien, founder and co-director of the Haitian Artists Assembly of Massachusetts, has established himself as a master storyteller since the release of his first CD, "Ti Oma" (2001) and numerous storytelling performances. His work has been praised by critics in Haiti and in the Diaspora as a sure continuation of the legacy of Haiti's most famous storytellers. As an artist and an illustrator, Lucien has participated in group exhibits and illustrated magazines, newspapers (Le Nouvelliste, Haiti en March, Regards 2000, INAGHEI Actuel, Haiti Libérée, etc.) and books. He is the author of two volumes, "Ces Grosses Têtes de l'Actualité, Vol. I & Vol. II"
