Eclectic, Vibrant, and Inspirational are just a few of the adjectives used to describe the performance and style of ‘Heights of Wisdom’. The founding members of the Band include: Javed Wiggins (Saxophone), Desmond Braxton (Keyboard), Michael Pitt (Guitar), (Bass) and Rimel Smith (Drums and Percussions).
Heights of Wisdom specializes in Roots Reggae music, as well as original sounds that defy the confinement of a genre while resonating within the soul and spirit.
The group was formed by friends simply reasoning about the connection of the performing arts to the heart. Conversing about music was a daily activity among these friends while sitting in the club room area of Baruch College. Eventually, a musical connection sparked. It so happened that a jam session happened the next week and unofficially, Heights of Wisdom was created.
