TGIF Jazz Aug. 3: Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca

by The Editors on July 29, 2007

Gallery11Carlsbad’s summer TGIF Jazz In The Parks moves to the heart of Carlsbadistan for two weeks. The Pine Avenue Park leg of the tour kicks off with Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca.

Ricardo Lemvo has established himself as a pioneer with his innovative music, combining Latin and African elements from salsa to soukous with an occasional merengue or Afro-Portuguese excursion. 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.

We’re going to walk to this one (dragging an ice-chest), see you there.
