Time Out says
The Center for Traditional Music and Dance is launching an online series to highlight the artistry of the city’s leading immigrant performers from around the world, including from Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Gambia, Haiti, Iraq, Japan, Mongolia, Ukraine, and West Africa, among other areas. Specifically, you'll see performances from Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena dancer and educator Julia Gutiérrez-Rivera (Los Pleneros de la 21 and Redobles de Cultura) and friends in the Bronx; renowned Indian Kuchipudi dancer and dance prodigy Yamini Kalluri of Brooklyn; the storytelling of Japanese dancer Sachiyo Ito in Manhattan; Afro-Colombian musical family of Johanna Castaneda and Ronald Polo in Queens; an intergenerational Sri Lankan Dance Academy of New York on Staten Island, starting on Monday. CTMD will highlight three artists or ensembles each week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Audiences can tune in on those days at 5pm to CTMD’s YouTube channel or Facebook page.
