Grammy Award-winning indie rock band Arcade Fire to play in Haiti for Carnival

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - A representative for Arcade Fire says that the Grammy Award-winning indie rock band will perform in Haiti this month.

Scott Rodger of Quest Management confirmed in an email that the Montreal band will play Feb. 21 as part of the country's Carnival celebrations in the coastal town of Jacmel. The event generally features only local groups.

Arcade Fire's fourth and latest album, "Reflektor," draws on Haitian musical traditions such as "rara." It was one of the most critically acclaimed albums of last year.

The band won a Grammy in 2011 for album of the year.
