I joined the FAB Festival today, performing Sanshin and singing Okinawan folk songs.
The FAB (Fourth Arts Block) is one of many festivals around this fall season in Manhattan. The location of FAB is on one block of 4th Street in the East Village, Manhattan, between Bowery and 2nd Avenue. There were local stores' booths and many other arts organizations' booths presented on the block. There were two main performing stages set up on the block, and many people enjoyed the various performers.
