Accordions Around the World in Bryant Park
- 5:00pm – 7:15pm | Throughout Park
Take a cross-cultural musical journey – from France to Colombia, from the Balkans to Louisiana, from Cumbia to Jazz, and more – with accordions, harmoniums, concertinas, and bandoneons.
Accordionists play throughout the park at 5pm, and at 6pm, a band with a different infectious, global beat performs each week on the Fountain Terrace.
Produced in collaboration with Ariana’s List.
