About

Baraka Kwa Wimbo means "Blessings through Song" in Kiswahili.

 

Baraka Kwa Wimbo is an all-female gospel a cappella ensemble founded in 1991 at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York.

Our purpose is to spiritually and culturally enlighten the Cornell community and surrounding areas through the medium of Black Gospel music. We carry out this purpose by performing at various campus programs and community activities within the Cornell and Ithaca community.
