On September 15, 2018 at the People’s Garden in Bushwick, Brooklyn, HCX joined the Brooklyn-Queens Land Trust at the final stop of the BQLT Annual Bike & Walking Tour.

Brooklyn-based Strings N Skins, brought the rhythm under the J line as gardeners, community members and families viewed outdoor sculptures and enjoyed a delicious community barbecue, dancing and the last rays of a long summer day.

Strings N Skins celebrates their Caribbean, Latin American and African  heritage through the dynamic and explosive blend of the violin and the djembe. The band was  founded in Brooklyn, New York in 2015 by vocalist and percussionist Okai and Latin Grammy Award Winner violinist Luisa Bastidas.
