This eclectic ensemble of highly regarded internationally acclaimed musicians was founded in 2016 by Grammy Nominated Band Leader and Composer, Weedie Braimah. Braimah, a phenomenally talented and highly sought-after DjembeFola whose vision is to build a reverence for folkloric West African music in hopes of it evolving and being placed in the world musical arenas of jazz, funk, fusion, world music, and hip hop, is a new face of African percussion both nationally and internationally. He has been able to connect his world with the likes of Christian Scott Atunde Adjua, Pedrito Martinez, Trombone Shorty, Bokante, Baaba Maal, and Cory Henry to name a few.
This astounding folkloric orchestra mounts percussion as the frontage presenting music of the diaspora focusing on instruments such as Ngoni, Djembe, Dunun, Bass, Keys and Electric Guitar creating new sounds and boundaries like none before.
Weedie Braimah and the Hands of Time exemplifies tradition, evolution and soul. They are a highly engaging, inspirational and entertaining orchestra that is sure to awaken the African Soul defying the laws of gravity all in the hands of time.
