Event Description

Get ready for a high-energy evening that unites musicians from four continents in a hip-shaking blend of Afrobeat rhythms, psychedelic funk, hip-hop, and sensational Afro-Cuban Salsa. It’s a musical journey that traces the cross-cultural roots of contemporary world music - from Somalia to Chile, Tanzania to Puerto Rico, and Burundi to Brooklyn - reflected through the experiences of musicians who are both artists and immigrants. The lineup features Bronx based hip-hop duo, Rebel Diaz, with Brooklyn’s psychedelic Afrobeat allstars, Super Yamba Band, Afro-pop sensation A2VT, and Springfield’s own The Salsa Train Orquestra./.El Tren De La Salsa. Gates open at 5PM, music starts at 6PM with food trucks, local breweries, pop-up art exhibitions, bike valet, and more. FREE and open to all ages!
