June is New York Music Month, the official citywide celebration of New York City’s music industry, artists, and fans.
The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and NYC Parks have teamed up to present a new series of concerts in Bronx and Queens parks to celebrate New York Music Month! Ranging from Caribbean music to Latin to rock and roll, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Morrisania neighborhood was the home to many jazz musicians and was also one of the cradles of Hip hop in the Bronx. This walking tour will explore the jazz, doo-wop, Latin music and hip hop history of the neighborhood as well as its social history from the fires that raged in the 1970s to the social activism that has built it back up.
Take a two-hour historical, architectural, and musical tour of the Harlem Renaissance with The Levys’ Unique New York! Tour Guides.
With guests Ben Bohmer & Enamour
