New York City’s spiciest autumn event returns to Brooklyn Botanic Garden, celebrating the chile pepper and its uses in cultures around the world with performances and culinary activities for the whole family to enjoy! On Saturday, October 3, 2009, from noon to 6 p.m., the Garden presents a diverse homage to the chile pepper featuring the joyful African pop mix of Nepo Soteri & Asante; the infectious blend of North Indian Bhangra and brass funk by Red Baraat; and the return of Lost Bayou Ramblers, vanguards of the Cajun musical tradition who have thrilled thousands with their repertoire of early accordion dancehall tunes, Cajun swing, and original numbers. Throughout the day, MCs Robbins & Ringold fire up audiences with fire eating, fire juggling, and other daring deeds of flame.
