Something magical happened on June 16, 2007 when some of New York’s Hottest Emerging Musicians, Dancers, Artists, Poets, Community Leaders and children’s performance groups united to bring to fruition the 1st Annual New Village Music Festival. There were over 1,000 people of all ages and nationalities in attendance and witnessed first hand the awesome power of community unity.
The New Village Music Festival (NVMF) is New York’s Hottest Fusion Festival. The NVMF is a family concert that celebrates Music, Culture and Life. The focus of this event is to promote community activism through music, dance, poetry and cultural arts. Uniting people of all ages and ethnicities to raise awareness of the importance of peace within our communities while promoting children’s cultural arts programs. This is an event that lends itself to cultural fusion music.
The 7th annual New Village Music Festival “Global Connection 2017” will be held at Tompkins Square Park on August 25th. Our theme “Global Connection” will encompass a variety of issues such as: Health, Poverty, Discrimination, Violence and other important issues that plague our world. It is our hope to use this venue to further an agenda of health, peace and unity by connecting as many people as possible to a loving, healing and wonderful message of unity and harmony through music from all over the globe.
