CELEBRATE BROOKLYN! @ Brooklyn Bridge Park
Celebrate Brooklyn! Global Dance Party at Brooklyn Bridge Park
Balkan Beat Box, Joro Boro
Since 2005, Balkan Beat Box has been pumping out a kinetic kaleidoscope of Mediterranean-meets-electronic music and shows no signs of stopping their boisterous party. Fueled in part by people’s protest movements across the globe—from the Arab Spring, to Occupy Wall Street, to Israel’s own massive social protests—their music captures the cautious hope and re-energized spirit of our time. Also hailing from the Balkans, "crunk charlatan" DJ Joro-Boro will bring his unique beats—described as etnoteck, glitch-folk and post-national bass—to the turntable at the top of the night. Get there early for a belly dancing lesson (Dance of Venus) that will surely shake up your mid-section.
