BIG ROAD IN CHELSEA
on Saturday, FEBRUARY 15th, 2014, at 7 PM
for a preview of the NEW YORK AFRICAN CHORUS ENSEMBLE'S
"Celebrate Diversity, Celebrate You" Festival.
There will be three great musical acts, dancers, poetry and a short film
the NY African Chorus Ensemble - an award winning group of virtuoso vocalists, musicians and dancers directed by the NYACE founder, ethnomusicologist Joyce Adewumi (lead singer in the video below), showcasing a wide range of African vocal music in choral settings.
Niall O'Leary's Percussive Irish Music and Dance Ensemble, organized by
World Champion step dancer and cultural educator
Legacy Women - an all-women group of dynamic singers, precision
drummers and expressive dancers performing the music of the Afro-Latin
Caribbean and highlighting the role of women in preserving and
transmitting culture. They will also be showing and discussing the film, "Birthright Crisis 2012," concerning the ongoing crisis faced by people of Haitian ancestry in the Dominican Republic, including many who were born there, but are being stripped of their Dominican citizenship and deported to Haiti (a neighboring land where most have never been).
