A concert, dance, and celebration of progressive culture and community!

Featuring two fabulous bands:
Zili Misik - Reconnecting Haitian mizik rasin, jazz, roots reggae, samba, Cuban son, and neo soul, Zili Misik honors its influences while creating a sound that is uniquely its own. Zili Misik retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through diasporic rhythm and song.

What Cheer Brigade - A rowdy 19-piece roving brass band, a mobile party with a taste of Bollywood, the Balkans, New Orleans, Samba, and Hip Hop.
