Happy Fourth of July Brooklyn!

Dear Brooklyn,

Below you will find a wonderful moment that occurred during The Sweetest Song Festival’s “Singing the Gods program.” The clip features a group of our Sweetest Singers closing out the April 30th program at the Woody Tanger Auditorium in Brooklyn College.  Jeggae “Winston” Hoppie made the suggestion for all the performers to share a rhythm together. It was a blending of voice, rhythm, movement and language that found room for individual expression–America at it’s finest.  Happy fourth of July, Brooklyn! Enjoy!

Sincerely,
Your Folklorist
