In anticipation of the upcoming Lunar New Year, this festival invites visitors to explore and experience traditions old and new that celebrate the Moon. Enjoy a meditative reflection on the dawa (moon) with a Lama from Tibet; learn a Grandmother Ehnita song from singer-songwriter Bear Fox and Akwesasne Women Singers of the Mohawk Nation; and create your own Dong Ho Vietnamese folk painting. Fly to the moon with Chinese Theatre Works, dance to the majestic sounds of the Korean Daegeum bamboo flute, music by Paul Yeon Lee and the New York Korean Traditional Marching Band, share favorite holiday stories at the Kitchen Conversations mobile recording booth, and look forward to the Year of the Snake by learning about Chinese culinary holiday traditions with master wok chef Grace Young.
