MELA Recommends | New York City Summer 2017



It’s the first day of summer and summer in New York City means even more performing arts! When it’s summer in the Big Apple, there really is NO excuse not to see show or attend a concert, especially when there are plenty of options that are outdoors (so you can enjoy that sun) and free.

This summer, we’re especially excited because we feel it’s a landmark summer for South Asian performing arts! Not only is there a great diversity in forms, but South Asian artists and art forms are being presented on MAJOR (by that we mean nationally and internationally recognized) stages across the city. These factors coupled with the fact that New York City is our company’s backyard, here is the first edition MELA Recommends – our suggestions on some cool South Asian performances you shouldn’t miss.  Whether you are in the mood for Bollywood, bhangra, theatre, or Indian classical dance – we’ve got you covered! It’s important to note that this list is by no means comprehensive, but rather a look at the some of the many options for you in NYC this summer.
