Eleven young musicians from three Central Asian countries continue to conquer the generous hearts and ears of New Yorkers in this series of concerts around the city.

The musicians also continue their work with American music professionals in a series of workshops. Today before the concert at The Met the guys worked with Katie Geissinger, an outstanding music teacher and musician at Meredith Monk studio in TriBeCa:

Right after that The Bandistan headed to The Metropolitan Museum of Art where they presented traditional  music of Central Asian countries in the Court and Cosmos exhibition’s galleries. The concert became possible through partnership between CEC ArtsLink and MetLiveArts:

Tomorrow we are waiting for everyone in the South Bronx, where The Bandistan Ensemble will improvise with Mott Haven and Port Morris’ musicians and members of the local community.

More music to enjoy and to think about…
