Songs From the East Village Release Party at Tenement Talks Tonight

The East Village Community School will be celebrating the release of their album, Songs From the East Village this evening at the Tenement Museum.  The album is a very creative way to raise money for the school, combining the talents of some of the parents  (including accomplished singer and musician Susan McKeown, who oversaw the production) and children from the school. Focusing on the diversity of cultures and backgrounds that make up the residents of the East Village, the album includes a vast array of musical traditions from Iraq, Tibet, Nigeria, Spain, Mauritius, Ireland, England and the United States.
