Braata Singer’s Wheel An’ Come Again’ A Big Hit With Patrons In Brooklyn

After two years of notable performances throughout the tri-state area, the Braata Folk Singers recently completed their 2nd Annual Concert Season “Wheel An’ Come Again” with a sold out performance at the Brooklyn Music School.

The group performed many traditional Jamaican and Caribbean folk classics including Dip And Fall Back, Linstead Market, Dis Long Time Gyal, De Blinkin Bus, and Evening Time. The group’s repertoire also included a wide range of musical genres such as kumina, bruckins, dinki-mini, revival, mento, ring games and nine-night selections.

Acclaimed for their rich blend of Afro-Caribbean folk gems and spiritual-tinged tunes, the 12-member choir continue to demonstrate a versatility and dynamic repertoire as it showcases the best that the Caribbean community has to offer in the Diaspora.

According to Musical Director, Garnet Mowatt, “The musical range of the artists has improved over the past two years and the selections, though musically challenging, have been mastered by the ensemble.”
