On that same bill, Carol East aka Sister Carol offered opening treats that marveled fans who had not seen her onstage in quite a while.
A staple at West Coast festivals, the Denham Town native performed at Reggae Sunsplash in 1987 but seemed more at ease delivering culturally empowering lyrics at Summerstage.
Popularly known as the Black Cinderella and Mother Culture she did not disappoint. Segueing from a recording she collaborated with Marcia Griffiths to close her segment deejaying a tune from her featured role in the movie “Wild Thing,” the veteran entertainer confidently commanded the stage edu-taining throughout her set.
Sister Carol is an accredited teacher, deejay, Grammy nominee and actress. Her feature role in the films “Married To The Mob” and “Rachel Getting Married” and her songs were integral in the film “Ricki and the Flash” in 2015.
When she is not on the West Coast, billed at Reggae On The River she spends her time as a transient commuter between New York and Jamaica. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic her philanthropic contributions to disfranchised neighbors eased the needs of residents in rural Jamaica.
