Description: Celebrate Brooklyn! Dance Parties at Brooklyn Bridge Park return. Enjoy dance lessons, food trucks and amazing views. This concert features Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, Okayafrica Electrafrique with Chief Boima, and DJ Underdog. After a 10-year adventure that has taken them from the squalor of refugee camps to the world’s biggest stages, Africa’s most inspirational band continues to ascend with what very well may be their best album yet. Over the years they have evolved to become one of Africa's most recognized bands with fans across the globe. Libation's acoustic intimacy, toe-tapping rhythms, catchy melodies, honest soulfulness, socially conscious lyrics and musical dexterity reveal how far the group has come while remaining true to its roots.The dance lesson at the opening of the party will be led by Iris Wilson (FELA!) who is an instructor at Cumbe: Center for African and Diaspora Dance.
