My pleasure to join with the Center for Traditional Music and Dance and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to present the West African Fulani flute tradition at the Discovery Garden on Saturday. Guinean musician Bailo Bah and Brooklyn musician Raul Rothblatt played traditional Fulani instruments and children in attendance had an opportunity to make their own seed shaker instruments to take home.

Thanks to our performing artists, the Center for Traditional Music and Dance, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Thanks to all who joined us, and thanks to all the young artists who marched in our parade through the Discovery Garden with their seed shakers!
