Bakra Bata at the Wheelock Library
The six member Bakra Bata Steel Drums Band began providing entertainment services in the Puget Sound area in 1984, under the leadership of Michael Shantz. They have created a highly original and distinctly American style entertainment that draws primarily from the root traditions of trans-Atlantic cultures as they have developed in Caribbean music. The principal instruments featured are the steel drums played in combination with a fascinating variety of other Caribbean musical instruments.
