Let's enjoy a potluck picnic while listening to an awesome group of female singers: Adaawe
"Adaawe’s seven musicians, who originate from Kenya, Morocco, Israel, Panama and across the United States, create an international fusion of African music, R&B/pop vocals, jazz-funk, Latin and Reggae, steeped in Gospel harmonies. Add modern dance choreography, and you get a high-octane musical kaleidoscope sure to please the whole family!" http://www.adaawemusic.com (includes links to music/vids)
For those who can arrive early, let's walk for an hour prior, starting at 4:30pm. We could also walk after the concert if it's too hot prior and we don't have too much stuff with us from the picnic.
Admission to Descanso, which includes the concert, is $9 for adults; Seniors 65 and over/Students $6. N.B. annual membership includes unlimited admission to the gardens for TWO adults (you don't have to be married or live together and can bring someone if you don't go together, so i pay $35 for the year and split it with a friend). See https://www.descansogardens.org/participate/membership/ I will be hosting at least one more of these concerts this July.
