Bembe on the Lower East Side

Some of the fellas and a lady put on a Folkloric show in Loisaida in a beautiful vest pocket park. Nadir leads the group on vocals (Akpwon) and shekere and is backed up by Izzy Yemaya on shekere, Rubio on guataca, Apache on caja and Anthony on shekere. Ajna is the featured dancer and doubles on shekere as well.
