Experience the perfect combination of FREE live music and stunning waterfront views this summer at the 12-acre oasis that is Gantry Plaza State Park! Introducing Live at the Gantries, a series of free outdoor performances featuring a diverse range of local talents that celebrate the unique cultures and communities of Queens.

AJOYO is a joyful ceremony of unrelenting groove and virtuosic improvisation spearheaded by Sarah Elizabeth Charles, Yacine Boulares, and Jesse Fischer. Their singular sound blends African traditions, jazz, and soul. It is a celebration of life, love and justice through music: music for the heart, the mind and the body, the kind that is soulful, sophisticated and that makes people want to dance. Their self-titled debut album was celebrated for its vibrant eclecticism and social conscience, paving the way for War Chant winning Best Global Music EP at the 2020 IMA.

Presented in collaboration with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and with generous support from Plaxall, Inc., the Live at the Gantries kicks off on July 11 and continues every Tuesday through August 15. Starting at 7:00 PM, each concert showcases the very best in local music talent and culminates in a breathtaking sunset over the East River. Check more Live at the Gantries Concert here:
