Get inspired at the last in Celebrate Brooklyn!'s May dance party series in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Headlining tonight's shindig is Sierra Leone's All Stars. A band consisting of refugees displaced to Guinea during the Sierra Leone Civil War, the talented team put on an amazing and energetic live show. Come early for a dance lesson led by Iris Wilson of FELA! fame, and a set by the Okayafrica presented Electrafrique, a group that fuses elements of African music and electronic beats. And for those worried about the weather, take note that the party has moved and now goes down under the canopy at Pier 2.
