TGIF July 2: Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca

by The Editors on June 30, 2010


We have to admit that much of Carlsbadistan’s TGIF Jazz in the Park is deja vu all over again. (This is probably the second or third time we’ve said that, too.) But with Friday’s (July 2, 2010) concert by Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca it kind of makes sense.

When Lemvo takes the stage at Stagecoach Park he will be playing Jazz in the Park for the fourth time. And that tells us a couple things: One, Carlsbadistan loves Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca, and more importantly Lemvo apparently loves Carlsbadistan as well.

For those who’ve missed it here’s the short version:

Lemvo is a Congo-born artist of Angolan ancestry who 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.

We’ve probably said this before, too, but if you’re only going to attend one Jazz in the Park this summer, it should probably be this one.
