Harlem’s Day - Steel Orchestra helps Celebrate 35 Years - CASYM plays at Harlem Day’s tribute to Michael Jackson

Harlem, USA - One of the greatest and most fertile grounds for the arts, literature and entertainment is that celebrated place in uptown New York known as ‘Harlem.’ Its musical and artistic legacy is unparalleled. Today was the 35th anniversary of Harlem Day, and the steelpan instrument through CASYM Steel Orchestra was part of that commemoration of this rich cultural history and tapestry.

This year’s event was particularly special in that it was dedicated to the late great superstar Michael Jackson. The theme of the celebration was “We are the World.” Tens of thousands of attendees poured over the five-block zone that was transformed into a grand village of music, health and living historical nuggets.
