IS AMERICA PART OF THE WORLD? Outdoor Music Fest w/ Forro in the Dark, Nation Beat, DJ Nickodemus
ADVANCE ONLINE SALES HAVE ENDED. MORE TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.

______________________________________________________________________

On July 11 Brooklyn, which has become a veritable breeding ground for musicians looking beyond Americas borders for inspiration in recent years, will play host to the launch event of the Is America Part of The World? outdoor music festival at the BKLYN Yard. Produced by Nation Beat, Beleza NYC and Electric Lila, the event features four of New Yorks premiere music-mixocologists: Forro in the Dark, who dig deep into the sounds of northeastern Brazil, while singing in English, Portuguese, and Spanish, Nation Beat, who create a 21st century fusion between thunderous Brazilian maracatu drumming and New Orleans second line rhythms, bluegrass, and country-blues, Red Baraat Festival, who meld the infectious North Indian rhythm Bhangra with brass funk, dhol, percussion, horns and traditional Punjabi songs, and DJ Nickodemus, who explores the intersection of urban & regional sounds with funk, jazz, hip-hop, house & dub, all seen through the eyes of a New York native.

Presented in association with Modiba, National Geographic Music and Afropop Worldwide, these American artists are joining forces to move hips while challenging the way we think about American and World music. Join us on this joyous celebration as we celebrate the fruits of our cultural exchanges.
