ABOUT - Brooklyn Roots: Cathedral Concerts - Airbnb
In a chapel built in the 1860's, housed above tunnels believed to be part of the underground railroad, we feature world-class musicians from all corners of the globe. We celebrate the roots of Brooklyn's diverse cultural fabric and draw a diverse, local audience excited to see authentic world music and jazz in an intimate setting. A truly "New York Experience", a series with talent on this level (already dozens of Grammy recognized musicians have performed for us) and as diverse as this could only happen in this city.
This series is curated by David Ellenbogen host of NYC Radio Live, a WKCR 89.9 FM-NY broadcast and podcast, which has been influential in expanding the audience of world music in New York City.
