We are happy to share this wonderful video of the June 30 Soul Train Dance Party. This was shot by Festival visitor Yuri Vaysgant, who very concisely and elegantly captured the joy that the event inspired.

Yuri is a Boston-based freelance photographer and filmmaker. He told us, “This was my first time at the Festival. I thought it was great. I am interested in learning about other cultures and the Festival was a great platform for that. I loved hearing DJ QuestLove’s set, and seeing a diverse crowd was inspiring to me. I tried to capture the atmosphere/vibe in under 90 seconds.”

Check out the video here.
