Grassroots Gamelan – Summer Garden Music Series

As a way to get more people outside, enjoying gardens and live music, 6 partner organizations have come together to host an intimate series of pop-ups throughout the city. Grassroots Gardens, in partnership with None Like you/We Care Community Association, West Side Community Services, Fillmore Forward, Black Rock Riverside Alliance, and Jewish Family Services, have embarked upon the series (already underway) that has proven to be delightful and culturally impactful.

Nusantara Arts is an outdoor gamelan garden concert series “…that highlights the natural beauty of Buffalo’s community gardens and the wonderful communities that make them come alive!”

Each of the concerts is held within a unique Grassroots Gardens setting – the enchanting landscapes help to demonstrate the unique nature of the host neighborhoods.

If you’ve already caught one of the shows, then you’re lucky. That said, there are 5 more wonderful concerts to look forward to.
