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, for an evening of innovative music. And dancing on the wooden dance floor under the stars! 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. The wooden dance floor will be set out on the turf and the evening offers a pre-event Salsa class from the instructors at Santa Rosa Salsa for this special evening. "Lemvo and his band, Makina Loca, manage a blend of Cuban and Central African traditions that is seamless and organic - and infectious." - The Los Angeles Times The Osher Marin JCC's outdoor music series has been created to celebrate diversity, find commonalities, and bring generations together through live music.
