////////ABOUT L@TA
Live at the Archway is DUMBO's signature series: dynamic musical performances + spectacle opening acts + a pop-up art gallery + interactive art experiences, in a magical, only-in-DUMBO setting. Always free, all ages, + rain or shine.


The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St.


THE HEADLINER | AT 6:30PM. When it comes to Congolese popular music, Nkumu Katalay can do it all—he's a dancer, singer, drummer, percussionist, guitarist, bassist and bandleader. Born in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nkumu is a veteran of Lokassa Ya Mbongo's Soukous Stars, but he has become a fixture in New York City, especially in Harlem. In addition to leading The Life-Long Project Band, Nkumu is a co-director of the Yam Session, a monthly collective Afro jam session, and teaches weekly high-energy Afro-Congolese dance classes.

THE OPENER, FOR KIDS AND KIDS-AT-HEART | AT 5:00PM. The best-of performances from our local public schools, Dock Street Middle School and PS307 elementary school.

THE OPENER, FOR KIDS AND KIDS-AT-HEART | AT 5:45PM. Perennial favorites Fogo Azul–an all women (and gender non conforming) Brazilian Samba Reggae drum line–open Season Five of Live at the Archway, as is tradition, in the Pearl Street Triangle.

THE DJ | AT 8:00PM. Kai Song discovered his passion for DJ-ing and performing at the original Dumbo Block Party in 2007, when he joined his dad behind the decks. His first professional gig was at the Child
