Waves of Tradition is a curated week-long (May 1 – 5, 2017) celebration of New York City and the waves of immigrant cultures that make up its rich history.
Each day focuses on a different part of the world: West Africa, Japan, Ireland, the Middle East, and Latin America. Artists will tell their stories through music and dance each afternoon and evening, with a culminating Friday night concert.
The events take place a Brookfield Place (230 Vesey Street, near the World Trade Center), and are free to attend. Performances are at 12:30 p.m. & 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 12:30 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
