In late January 2007 member of Montreal's Kalmunity Vibe Collective performed at Cafe Toc Toc on the corner of Parc Avenue and Van Horne. The performance took place as part of a cultural event focused on the current situation in Haiti only two years after a violent coup d'état, which saw President Jean Bertrand Aristide removed from office by a violent uprising supported by Canada and the U.S.

The Kalmunity Vibe Collective, an ever-expanding performing arts crew, has become an important cultural force in Montreal, bridging various cultural communities and Montreal's flourishing arts scene. This performance included traditional Haitian percussion, violin, acoustic guitar and free-style vocals.

Recently Kalmunity released a book entitled Talking Book, published by the local Cumulus Press and edited by collective members Kaie Kellough and Jason "Blackbird" Selman. The book includes poetry in an array and mix of French, English and Creole poetry from the collective.
