Busquelo Productions & KPasta Records Presents
Sunset Session in the East River Park
Tropic of Cancer, founded in 2004, is an annual festival that celebrates the influence of tropical culture on urban underground music and art. Each summer, a benefit event brings together cutting edge DJs, musicians, and artists to create works that are based on the theme “the soul of the tropics.” This year we marks the first Tropic of Cancer event being held in a public new york park with free admission. An all star line up of 6 DJs and 1 10-piece afrobeat band, all within 4 hours, will make for a feature rich music presentation.
