Presents Afro-Cuban Beats with

Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca

Kid Zone, Dinners Available on site, Salsa Dance Lesson, Picnicking, Cocktails

The 27th Annual Summer Nights Series of live music, food, cocktails, dancing, and fun for everyone under beautiful Marin skies continues with the return of a Marin favorite: Afro Cuban beats from Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca.

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!

Salsa Marin partners with us for this event and will be providing pre-concert salsa dance instruction.
