More about DUMBO Family Festival

Mil’s Trills is a children’s music project led by Amelia Robinson, that invites families to celebrate the community through original tunes and a rotating cast of musical guests. A highly interactive show, audiences are encouraged to be part of the experience while discovering a world of instruments.

Moona Luna will be performing live at this year’s DUMBO Family Festival! Moona Luna is the kindie group that the New York Daily News says is providing “the missing soundtrack for bilingual/bicultural kids.” The female-led accordion-driven band has released their third studio album, P A N O R A M A, which celebrates their Latin roots while also drawing on broader musical influences from the African Diaspora. The album’s ten upbeat songs chronicle a family bus adventure through South America.
