Every Thursday evening this summer, multitudinous accordionists fill every corner of Bryant park in midtown Manhattan with squeezebox sounds from around the globe. Accordions Around the World is produced by Bryant Park in collaboration with music and arts blogger Ariana Hellerman. Ariana joins us along with accordionist Vitor Gonçalves - of the Brazilian choro band Regional de New York - to spread some squeezebox love.
Vitor and Regional de NY play this Friday night at 8 pm @ Barbes, 376 9th St., Park Slope, Brooklyn. They also play every other Sunday (including this coming Sunday) at Beco Bar, 45 Richardson St. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn - and that's an open session - bring your instruments!

Hey Rob, saw you at the Caravan For Peace at Lincoln Center Out Of Doors. Didn't get a chance to say hi. Did pick up that Mamabou Kelly cd though.
