Afro-Caribbean Music and Dance in Sunset Park
On Wednesday, July 23rd, the third presentation of Sunset Park's music and entertainment for children continues with Journey through the Caribbean performed by Retumba! Beginning sharp at 10:30 AM, the shows are near the game tables/playground area, and event-goers are advised to bring a blanket or chair to sit on and some water (or other appropriate refreshment) to drink.
The group is described as "a multi-ethnic all-female music and dance ensemble founded in March 1981 in celebration of Women's History month. Their work is borne from their unique interpretations of the traditional rhythms and ancient melodies of Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean islands." To see what this Wednesday's show is all about, check out this description of Retumba!
The free events are brought to us by the City Parks Foundation in cooperation with: Friends of Sunset Park and City of New York-Parks and Recreation.
