The Brooklyn Folk Festival has come to the 4th edition of the wave of enthusiasm last year, when rows of spectators were expected to enter the premises where live bands played.
Bands of musicians, and groups of girls, dressed in long skirts for the occasion, dance to the rhythm of the traditional American music. But since in New York, where much of the population is of Hispanic origin, the festival is multicultural. There are also performances of Latin music, such as the involvement of the Conga Libre Radio Jarocho.
This year, the Brooklyn Folk Festival has moved, and will be held in downtown Brooklyn, with the presence of more than 30 bands to play live folk music of all types (old-time string-band music, folk, blues, bluegrass, klezmer, Caribbean and Balkan folk music).
