Join us for a concert that will follow The Amazing Bronx River Flotilla, the kick off of the Bronx River Alliance paddling season.

Enjoy a live performance by Consumata, a Brooklyn-based band that'll make you dance with cumbia-punk, ska-funk, boss-a-rengue, and dubbed out tarantellas. Using cut-ups (a technique hearkening back to the Dadaists and Beat Poets), Consumata hones in on the non-linear aspects of musical construction and collaging sounds by means of serendipity. The result is organic and unpredictable. Maybe you'll step into a frenzied mosh-pit, maybe you'll hear your grandparents' folk songs ripping through the speakers. Wherever you find yourself, it will be wild.

Join NYC Parks for a special concert featuring Taikoza. Taikoza has created a new sound using the thunderous rhythms of the ancestral Taiko drums and the magical sounds of the bamboo flutes. Roughly translated, Taiko means big drums, and that’s exactly what Taikoza brings: big drums, powerful rhythms, and electrifying, room-thumping energy. This exciting group draws from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance to create a highly visual performance.

About Taikoza
Taikoza was formed in New York City by members of Ondekoza (the group that started the renaissance of taiko in Japan in the '60s and introduced Taiko worldwide).
