This summer join us at The Osher Marin JCC for its most popular event series: The Summer Nights Outdoor Music Festival. Tonight enjoy music by Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca! Congo born musician and singer, Ricardo Lemvo, arrives with his band, Makina Loco, along with their blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms with pan-African styles, to the 27th Annual Summer Nights Festival and an evening of innovative music. And dancing! Having established himself as a multi-cultural music pioneer, Ricardo is the embodiment of the Afro-Latin Diaspora, connecting back to Mother Africa via the Cuban clave rhythm. He is equally at home singing in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Lingala and Kikongo. Since forming his Los Angeles-based band Makina Loca in 1990, Lemvo has refined his craft and vision, raising his joyous voice with strength, singing songs that celebrate life, and most importantly, inspiring his audiences to let loose and dance away their worries. Bright horns, fat bass lines, amazing percussion and melodies that linger for days - be prepared for a street party that you’ll have to dance through! For this evening a wooden dance floor will be laid on the turf and the evening will begin with a salsa lesson to help you loosen up and get ready to dance all night.
Bring your picnic, blanket, low-backed lawn chairs, and dancing shoes—there's fun for the whole family! Dinners from a variety of local pop-up restaurants will be available for purchase, along with beer, wine, cocktails, non-alcoholic drinks, and snacks.
