QPTV’s Roslyn Nieves joins Flushing Town Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director Ellen Kodadek to bring you Flushing Town Hall’s Global Mashups Series.

In each Global Mashup concert, two cultures are mashed up on one stage with an open dance floor! First, each band plays a set, then the two meet and jam. The mashup often results in a unique, never-before-heard blend of two different cultures.

QPTV was there to capture the series and now has the shows available to view online and on Spectrum, RCN and FiOS.

The Global Mashups series is brought to you courtesy of Flushing Town Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director Ellen Kodadek, Deputy Director Sami Abu Shumays, Jazz Producer Clyde Bullard, and Director of Marketing and Community Engagement Shawn Choi.
