August 16th Twilight Dance Series: Amadou & Mariam and Y La Bamba


Tomorrow evening, Amadou & Mariam and Y La Bamba will be the featured artists at the Twilight Dance Concert at the Santa Monica Pier. As always, the shows are free and start at 7 pm!

Amadou & Mariam have toured with Coldplay and U2 and jammed with musical heroes David Gilmour and Johnny Marr. They’ve performed at a Nobel Peace Prize concert in honour of Barack Obama, and played at the opening ceremonies of the last two FIFA world cups. Manu Chao and Damon Albarn have lent their production skills to their records and they have worked with some of the most innovative names in contemporary rock music via Albarn’s ‘Africa Express’ and other cross-cultural projects, such as ‘L’Afrik C’est Chic’.

Y La Bamba is from Portland!
