BRIC throws its doors open with a one-of-a-kind free concert guaranteed to bring the love and put Brooklyn at the center of the universe.

Two-time Celebrate Brooklyn! alumnus and one of the most influential Jamaican roots reggae artists of all time, Burning Spear (aka Winston Rodney) is part Rastafarian preacher and part Black historian. His music celebrates his belief that all men and women deserve equal and just rights, treatment and respect.

The evening will open with OneBeat, an initiative of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and a production of Bang on a Can's Found Sound Nation. OneBeat brings musicians from all over the world together to collaborate, perform and engage with American communities.
