What’s your favorite Jamaican folk song? Evening Time? Chi chi bud oh? Mango Time? If you can’t choose just one you have to make a date with the Jamaican Folk Singers who will be here in South Florida on September 6 and 7 to headline the Miss Lou Full Hundred concerts.  Hear all your favorites and learn some new ones.  Enjoy that sweet, familiar mento rhythm with Linstead Market, catch the spirit in Kumina, and listen to new versions as folk goes urban up-tempo with ska and reggae in Pull up the Vibes.
Chi Chi Bud Oh! The Jamaican Folk Singers for S. Florida Concerts
The Jamaican Folk Singers have received international acclaim and numerous awards for the range and depth of their repertoire and their harmonious multi-part vocals accompanied by guitar, drums, flute and rhumba box. The combination of singers and musicians and their simple, yet expressive choreography makes for a moving and unforgettable musical experience.
 A highlight of the concerts will be a performance by poet, broadcaster and actress ‘Dat Bumpy Head Gal’ -Joan Andrea Hutchinson who, following in Miss Lou’s footsteps, writes and performs in Jamaican patois. A stellar performer, she engages her audience with her hilarious observations on Jamaica and Jamaicans. Also appearing are Malachi Smith and Maxine Osbourne with their take on Miss Lou and her stage partner Maas Ran, and the Tallawah Mento Band.
Miss Lou Full Hundred featuring The Jamaica Folk Singers will be held on Friday, September 6, 7:00pm, at the Royal Palm Beach Community High School, and on Saturday September 7, at 7:00pm at Coral Springs Center for the Arts.
