Braata Folk Singers Concert at Jamaica Performing Arts Center

Braata Folk Singers Concert

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Caribbean Folk Group the Braata Folk Singers will be expanding their repertoire in their first live production since the pandemic began. The Braata Folk Singers will present “Rebirth” at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center.  Braata Productions is dedicated to giving Caribbean and Caribbean-American artists a platform to showcase their work and talents. Their mission is to transform lives through cultural awareness and the arts and bring Caribbean folk culture, artists, music, stories, movement, and theater into more prominent spaces while providing an opportunity for Caribbean artists to receive greater recognition. The Braata Folk Singers are proud ambassadors of Caribbean folk music. Queens County is home to one of the world’s largest communities of Caribbean expatriates in the world. The title of the show is a metaphor for the world emerging from the pandemic. The program is inspired by people coming out of their cocoons of homes, apartments, and lofts to a different world than people who lived in pre-covid. Advanced ticket purchases are encouraged to minimize in-person purchasing and to observe Covid protocols. For those unable to attend the concert, donations are encouraged towards the Braata Folk Singer’s continued existence. The program is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and Council Member Alicka Amry-Samuel.
