New York City
This summer in New York City, we’ll be producing a series of events as part of SummerStage. Five SummerStage VOICES programs will feature contemporary artists and authors who will use events and words from our nation’s history as inspiration for new discussions. The series will culminate in Central Park on August 28 with live readings, dialogue, music, and celebration with very special guests. By giving public expression to rebels, dissenters, and visionaries from our past—and present—SummerStage and VOICES seek to educate and inspire a new generation working for social justice.
Join us on Saturday, June 30, 2018 when poet Lemon Andersen will be hosting a pre-show Voices of A People’s History Workshop before the performance.
Los Angeles’s Las Cafeteras began out of an attempt to remix Afro-Mexican music. The group has since evolved into a six-piece group, where its members imbue social consciousness within their twist on traditional roots songs. After sharing stages with the likes of Café Tacvba, they’ll be joined by the Colombian luminaries M.A.K.U. SoundSystem and the wide-ranging stylings of the DJ duo iBomba.
