This is for those who are biased about street musicians. Although they are sometimes identified with the homeless, they address themselves as musicians. They love the freedom of the city and are talented musicians to boot, so the city is just one giant stage and it shows on their lively faces. The audience is the beneficiary when they see a performance in an open space. Various factors make up a city’s romance, and for New York, street performances are one of them. Ranging from folk music legends to 21st century bands, the film moves hearts with the traditions and characteristics of street performances in New York. (LEE Yongchul)
