WATCH: Harlem Globe Trotters join STOMP to create rhythm on the court

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/26/16

An outdoor basketball court in Greenwich Village becomes a backdrop for sensational talent

Music can be made in any arena. In New York, tourists, school children at recess, and local residents — some from their upstairs apartment windows — were fortunate enough to catch Globetrotter stars Bull Bullard, Cheese Chisholm, Firefly Fisher, and Handles Franklin as they joined eight members of the internationally acclaimed STOMP for a percussion performance this time last year. It was all to celebrate the Globetrotters’ 90th anniversary.
