UUCLB, Wylder Hall
This year’s series boasts 3 vibrant music acts celebrating different cultures and traditions ranging from Veracruz style, Mexican folk music to traditional Lobi music from northwestern Ghana and then brings it back home with an afternoon of classical music!
Enjoy an afternoon with the Mexican folk music band Conjunto Jardin, son jarocho (Veracruz style). Check them out at www.conjuntojardin.com
“Conjunto Jardin… is built around the convincing, traditional-styled singing and playing of
sisters Libby and Cindy Harding. Their music… was almost instantly captivating, generating dancing in the aisles… It was a superb example of the manner in which traditional music and dance continue to have the power to reach out and gather in new, receptive audiences.”
– Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
