Legacy Women is an all-women’s traditional musical group rooted in Afro-Dominican and Afro-Puerto Rican traditions, including Palos, Congos, Salves, Bomba and other Afro-Indigenous root music of the Caribbean. Their music features original and traditional songs, precision drumming and expressive dancing. The Legacy Women make music that celebrates the fiery, nurturing, defiant, and wise touch of mujeres. Their performances are part of a process of building sisterhood with each other, in addition to imbuing their audiences with joy and strength.
New York Restoration Project (NYRP) is a non-profit organization driven by the conviction that all New Yorkers deserve beautiful, high-quality public space within ready walking distance of their homes. Since our founding in 1995 by Bette Midler, NYRP has planted trees, renovated gardens, restored parks, and transformed open space for communities throughout New York City’s five boroughs. As New York’s only citywide conservancy, we bring private resources to spaces that lack adequate municipal support, fortifying the City’s aging infrastructure and creating a healthier environment for those who live in the most densely populated and least green neighborhoods.
