From the edge of the other side of the world, wild Africa comes alive!
Superimposed sounds of bird species, elephants, lions and monkeys of the African Congo abound within a NYC garden. Designed to startle, engage and enthrall visitors and passersby, this art event is more than mere amusement however -acting as homage and commemorative to the African-American burial ground in which the garden takes it's name.
Translation: "The Garden at the Edge of the Other Side of the World"
Kongo or Kikongo is one of the Bantu languages spoken by the Kongo and Ndundu people
living in the tropical forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Angola.
