Through dance, music, and lectures, this festival presents an array of international and diasporic musical traditions extant in NYC and how they are sustained and evolve within the immigrant communities of the city. Rather than focusing on one tradition or culture, BIMF seeks to highlight through local, living exponents of traditional musics from outside the United States, the pancultural experience of how musical traditions are maintained outside their homelands in NYC.
