Harlem Meer Performance Festival: Sound Bridges
Come and enjoy the music of Sound Bridges, a Brooklyn-based performance group that combines elements of West African music with jazz and tap dance. Sound Bridges presents all original compositions drawn from African and jazz influences featuring the ancient sounds of the balafon, a wooden xylophone central to the Mande music traditions of West Africa.
A community fixture since the opening of the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center in 1993, the Harlem Meer Performance Festival is a free annual event that brings the best local talent to Central Park. Enjoy a variety of performances featuring multicultural music, dance, and family-friendly entertainment while admiring the Meer-side views.
The Festival is free and all ages are welcome. Check out our Event Q&As for more information.
