Okayplayer and SummerStage are excited to present London modern soul duo Jungle, French-Cuban twin sisters Ibeyi and Sunni Colón for a free concert in Central Park. The show will see the buzzing Jungle, who've been making waves with singles like "Busy Earnin'" and "Time," joined by their XL Recordings labelmates Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz (Ibeyi) — who released one of our favorite songs and music videos of 2014 (and a strong candidate for 2015's album of the year) — plus the LA-based songwriter Colón.
The concert will be part of the City Parks Foundation's '30 Years Of SummerStage' celebration this season, which will be hosting 30 artists at the park in 30 days. Be sure to follow SummerStage on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to receive all their announcements and check out their full schedule here.
