What you'll do
In a chapel built in the 1860's, housed above tunnels believed to be part of the Underground Railroad, we feature world-class musicians from all corners of the globe. During a set break we'll relax in the courtyard where you can meet the artists and other like-minded souls. We celebrate the roots of Brooklyn's diverse cultural fabric and draw a diverse, local audience to see authentic world music and jazz in an intimate setting. This is a truly "New York Experience"—in no other city could a series with this caliber of talent (already dozens of Grammy recognized musicians have performed) and diversity coincide together.
Serving as a radio host for two decades, and playing in places like Mali, Brazil, Cuba and India, have given me the best friends in the world. These friendships have enabled me to work with over 50 Grammy Award winning artists and to produce epic events like the 24 Hour Ragas Live Festival, which features over 70 musicians. This network of friends are the heart of this series. In NYC I'm best known for my work as a guitarist with the Brooklyn Raga Massive and for my 89.9 FM radio show and podcast NYC Radio Live.

Where you'll be
This historic convent takes up almost an entire city block. Mercy Home was built in 1862 by the Sisters of Mercy, who were known throughout Brooklyn for their compassion, kindness, and the tunnel in the basement that was rumored to be an Underground Railroad station.
