In 2009, PEN American Center partnered with FIAC during the PEN World Voices Festival. The event featured saxophonist Buyu Ambroise, vocalist Martina Bruno, Michèle Voltaire Marcelin, and Etienne Télémaque as Master of Ceremonies. Here is the copy from the event:

No literary series on Haiti would be complete without a celebration of Haiti’s vivid oral culture. Participants will engage in a session of Krik? Krak!—a Haitian storytellers’ ritual of warming up their audiences by asking “Krik?” and taking the collective response “Krak!” as their cue to begin to tell stories and jokes. Join these renowned writers for this very special happening where stories yet to be defined will take shape.
