EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S CORNER, Fall 2015
Dear Friends –
What a summer! The crowds, the talent and the presenters all agreed. We had one of the best summers yet! From Brooklyn’s Central Library to Central Park’s Harlem Meer Circuit Productions, Inc. (CPI) kept New Yorkers listening and dancing to global beats. Audiences came to Circuit’s dance parties and concerts in Latin, Blues, Jazz, and World Music/Dance.
Brooklyn Public Library’s Plaza Swing Series at Central Branch was held out doors at scenic Grand Army Plaza. These two events brought in more than 1500 attendees. After a short class in swing dance the folks were ready to GO! On June 24th the legendary Harlem Blues and Jazz Band did not disappoint. They kept the audience going for nearly two hours with Take the A Train, C Jam Blues, Struttin’ With Some BBQ, Caravan and more! On July 15th one of New York’s favorite Latin bands, Juan Ma Morales’s Sonido Costeño had everyone going AND GOING to Salsa and Mambo music.
Circuit’s summer events continued at full speed at the Harlem Meer Performance Festival series. Central Park Conservancy holds this annual event at the Charles A. Dance Conservancy. More than 1200 people per event came to see these talented artists. New to the Meer were world music artists, Famoro Dioubate & Kakande, and Garifuna International. Kakande’s fusion of traditional Guinean rhythms mixed with pulsing grooves had audiences up and moving to the beat. But it was the Garifuna International Band, playing the Punta music of their culture. Their music, a mixture of African, Latin and the rhythms of Central America’s indigenous peoples brought the audience up and off their feet in droves. The Summer was indeed a spectacular hit.
