Bracket“Bracket of “Yori Yori” fame will be performing live and direct from Africa at the Festival Village on April 26th,”‘said Melissa Webster, president of the African Flavor foundation.  

“We are all very excited about this for many reasons.  First because Bracket is coming with their full band out of Africa and have promised a night to remember.

Secondly, because the African Flavor night is going to be a unique experience for everyone who attends the show.   And thirdly, because we will be going straight from African Flavor into J’Ouvert morning,” Ms. Webster said.
