Yankee Bajan, is a unique collaboration between Barbadian artists and Barbadian descendants in the US.
Yankee Bajan, is a play with music written by Linda Parris-Bailey and directed by Dahlak Brathwaite. The original play focuses on an African-American family’s response to racism and violence in the US and their sojourn to repatriate to their ancestral home in Barbados.
Rhythmic Bajan music, by composer/music director H. Stefan Walcott, soul stirring songs, vivid dreamscapes by media/set designer Russell Watson, and real challenges engage the audience in the family’s journey to find home.
