Cha Wa / DJ sets by Vinil Pompéia]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/02/summerstage-nao-zumbi-nation-beats-carnival-caravan-feat-cha-wa-dj-sets-by-vinil-pompia http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/02/summerstage-nao-zumbi-nation-beats-carnival-caravan-feat-cha-wa-dj-sets-by-vinil-pompia Date: August 2, 2015

Nação Zumbi
Twenty years ago, one of the most important groups in Brazil launched its first record, Da Lama ao Caos. The debut album by Chico Science & Nação Zumbi was a milestone for a group of friends, that by creating a scene, started a movement that ultimately destabilized the axis of musical production in Brazil. Their second album, Afrociberdelia, was launched in June 1996, but in less than a year, the band – and the world – would lose their front man Chico Science. Despite the huge blow, it wasn’t the end. Nação Zumbi reestablished itself and ever since has reinvented themselves year after year, and album after album. Having released six studio albums, Nação Zumbi brings manguebeat to life, and continues to be one of the most influential and respected Brazilian music bands today.

Nation Beat’s Carnival Caravan feat. Cha Wa
Carnival Caravan is a new collaborative touring concept featuring Brazilan-American group Nation Beat and New Orleans band Cha Wa. The goal? To incorporate Brazilian, New Orleans and related music, dance and art into a show that explores the cultural exchange between North and South America. Nation Beat’s Scott Kettner and Cha Wa’s Joe Gelini met in New Orleans on Mardi Gras Day in front of Big Chief Monk Boudreaux’s house awaiting the Golden Eagle Tribe. As Scott & Joe paraded with the Golden Eagles to the legendary corner of Second & Dryades they began a musical dialogue that became the inspiration for this musical collaboration. Its no surprise that even though they were playing instruments & rhythms from separate continents, the message was the same. It became clear there was a musical & cultural connection that was understood without words.

Vinil Pompéia
Do you remember when, back in the days, friends used to get together around record players to listen to new music releases and enjoy the deep sounds coming out of the vinyl? For most people this is the past, but not for the popular radio show, “Vinil Pompéia”. Featuring Chiquitito Corazon, Brig82 and Camilo Fyahman, the vinyl only radio show, aims to bring back the ritual of playing vinyl. “Vinil Pompéia” brings a diverse musical selection and precious tips about the record culture through the hosts and many special guests. The show proved to be so popular on the air, that it has come out of the virtual world and onto the dance floor. The “Vinil Pompéia” team travels around Brazil playing parties with the quality at the edge of the needle, as people say. Whether in the virtual or real world, “Vinil Pompéia” is becoming an oasis for vinyl lovers and everyone who appreciates good music.

Written candidly by Frances’s daughter, Arleen Mercorella, A Matter of Survival: The Story of Frances is a testament to the ability to overcome life’s challenges—a true inspiration for those facing hardships of any type in their lives. Born to Italian immigrants in 1917; Frances’ father resented her for being a girl, and her mother resented her for being born at all. And when a rift in the family left the girl and her mother alone and penniless, things managed to get even worse: she was taken away to an orphanage, left in the care of stern nuns who never offered the hysterically crying six-year-old an ounce of comfort. This inspiring true story documents the incredible life of Frances, and how she has faced each instance of adversity and prejudice in her life armed with sweetness and grace.

Arleen Mercorella was born and raised in Queens, New York. In addition to her experiences in the business world, Arleen also completed several college writing courses, leading her to develop a style of her own and find success in a variety of business writing projects. Arleen also became a licensed New York City tour guide and started her own company out of her love for New York City and her passion for knowledge. For the past five years, Arleen and her husband have been retired and living in the Wilmington area of North Carolina.

The play is set during the latter days of the Roman Empire and tells the fictional story of Titus, a general in the Roman army, who is engaged in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths. It is Shakespeare's bloodiest and most violent work and traditionally was one of his least respected plays. Although it was extremely popular in its day, by the later seventeenth century it had fallen out of favour. In the Victorian era, it was disapproved of primarily because of what was considered to be a distasteful use of graphic violence, but from around the middle of the twentieth century its reputation began to improve.

Once a free and open society, Vienna is bitterly divided between high morals and the greed of commerce. Disguised as a monk, the duke wanders the land, prying into the daily lives of his subjects. When his deputy sentences Claudio to death, the virtue and purity of his sister, Isabella, is the price she must pay to save her brother’s life. Measure for Measure is directed by artistic director Stephen Burdman.

Join NYC Parks for free, family-friendly movies in our city's parks!

When an incident results in the death of an employee, Jurassic Park owner John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) brings in three specialists to sign off on the park to calm investors. The specialists, paleontologist Alan Grant (Sam Neill), paleobotanist Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and chaos theorist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), are surprised to see the island park's main attraction are living, breathing dinosaurs, created with a mixture of fossilized DNA and genetic cross-breeding/cloning. However, when lead programmer Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) shuts down the park's power to sneak out with samples of the dinosaur embryos to sell to a corporate rival, the dinosaurs break free, and the survivors are forced to find a way to turn the power back on and make it out alive. The film also stars Bob Peck, Martin Ferrero, Ariana Richards, Joseph Mazzello, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.
