Accordions Around The World

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

Accordions Around the World is a five-week series that brings more than 60 accordionists, as well as bandoneón, bayan, concertina, and harmonium players of different musical genres, from around the globe to perform at Bryant Park. Accordion Picnics spotlights 12 musicians at each performance and offers audiences the chance to experience the range of this often-overlooked instrument. All performances are FREE. The series culminates on Friday, September 14, with the Accordion Festival. This special event includes Shashmaqam (Bukharian Jewish Music and Dance from Central Asia) as well as:

Rhode Island-based João Cirilo Pilom Batuko Band (Funana and Batuko from Cape Verde), New York's own Shilpa Ray (Indie rock on the harmonium), Italian superstars Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (Pizzica Tarantata from Puglia), and all-women sister act Rimel (Mexican Norteño).

Food and drink curated by Hester Street Fair available for purchase.
