Make Music NY Concerts, June 20, Salif Keita, Tabou Combo and Lo'Jo or Punk Island

While London is celebrating Fete de la Musique along Exhibition Road, New York gets a warm up by hot line-up from Mali, Haiti and France with Salif Keita, Tabou Combo, Lo'Jo in a Free Concert.

Lo'Jo might be the least known quantity amongst the 3 acts.

Lo’Jo is a sextet that builds on France’s popular art form of street performance to reflect their diverse communal culture, and truly push the traditional music into a modern context by incorporating a variety of international grooves.


This concert is at Central Park Summerstage yet part of Make Music New York, Fete de la Musique with a Big Apple flavor. It starts at 3 PM.

If you miss Punk Rock's DIY spirit and energy get your fill with Make Music New York, Punk Island on Governor's Island.

Bands will perform on 17 stages scattered around the island, as free ferries transport revelers from Lower Manhattan and DUMBO to Governors Island every half hour, beginning at 10am.

Because Governors Island is closed on the day of Make Music New York, Punk Island takes place the day before, on Sunday, June 20th. Just like the rest of MMNY, all performances are outdoors and completely free.


Punk Island begins at 10am and ends at 5pm sharp. Free ferries leave every 30 minutes from the Battery Maritime Building in Battery Park, Manhattan, and every 20 minutes from the Fulton Ferry Landing in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Ferry service from Manhattan begins at 10am; service from Brooklyn begins at 11am.

No alcoholic beverages, pets, or weapons are permitted on Governors Island.

This is the 4th Edition of Make Music New York with majority of events on Monday, June 21...
