Event Description

The 4th of five consecutive Saturday night outdoor concerts with dinners, cocktails, picnics, dancing and Kid Zone, brings hard-driving, dance inspiring Afro-Cuban beats from Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca.  Ricardo has established himself as a pioneer with his innovative music and Afro-Cuban rhythms with pan-African styles (soukous, Angolan semba and kizomba) that has been described by the Los Angeles Times as "seamless and infectious."

This Congo-born artist of Angolan ancestry is the embodiment of the Afro-Latin Diaspora which connects back to Mother Africa via the Cuban clave rhythm. Lemvo is truly multi-cultural and 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.
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.
The beautiful and safe Swig Field is surrounded by Marin hills and begs for picnicking. Food is available for purchase on-site from Fairfax's own Casa Manana pop-up Restaurant.  No alcohol is allowed to be brought in, but is available for purchase. 

Marin Community Clinics host the Kid Zone, offering up an art project alongside the playground for youngsters. A Georgi & Willow pop-up shop will offer festival shopping and add to the full Marin community experience.
