Tonight August 3rd from 7:30-10:00 PM is a free African-themed event in Central Park affiliated with the SummerStage series. World renowned banjoist Bela Fleck will be putting on a performance with Malian musician Toumani Diabate. This musical event will be followed by a film screening of Fleck's journey to Africa where he discovers the musical origins of the banjo. This is a great opportunity to gather your friends with an assortment of picnic food and just hang out and enjoy an evening of African culture. Events are put on by the City Parks foundation and are all free with a suggested donation of $5. Tonight's performance will be on the great lawn.
