December 21, 2014 at Make Music New York in the Bronx

Late Sunday afternoon following the Make Music New York Parranda con Paranda music jam organized by the Bronx Music Heritage Center, WHEDco (The Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation), the Garifuna Coalition, and City Lore. I was present for only part of it, but had fun, and made a tiny contribution (with my “FELIZ NAVIDAD” decorated accordion) to the jam session featuring some great Latino musicians. Thanks to Ariana Hellerman for the photo and for her role in organizing the event.

A good time was had by all who listened, sang along, clapped, or even danced a waltz or a tango or two (see second photo below).
