Join artists-in-residence Art Parley for a performance and conversation on immigrants, music and cultural hybridity. The violinist and composer, Sita Chay, and her all immigrant band will take audiences on a musical and visual journey, depicting the convergence of different cultures united in solidarity. Their performance and conversation will examine how string and percussion instruments influence the music of various musical traditions and how new sounds are created as people travel from one country to another, while trying to escape oppression.
This program is part of Round Robin, which started as a free trilingual newspaper in Chinese, English, and Spanish for the communities in Chinatown, LES and Two Bridges. This summer, the Round Robin newspaper has come to life in the form of a collaborative forum for self-empowered leadership, cross cultural solidarity, and language access.
Art Parly invites all immigrants and local residents to participate in this forum through in-person summer workshops to create a network of communication channels and platform involving creative forms of expression in Chinatown, LES and Two Bridges neighborhoods.
