On Saturday, July 28 at 4 pm we’re getting together to enjoy a live concert on the lawn at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (http://www.lacma.org/). This is part of LACMA’s Latin summer concert series and this particular night features the music of Peruvian band, Cecilia Noël & The Wild Clams.
Vocalist Cecilia Noël is passionate, flamboyant, exotic, and incredibly talented — and on her aptly titled new CD A Gozár! (To Enjoy), she demonstrates why critics have long called her the “Latin Tina Turner.” Salsoul is the genre Noël created to describe her sound. It combines elements of salsa, soul, jazz, funk, and afro-Cuban.
The Wild Clams received quick attention for their explosive live shows and were booked at the House of Blues and the Playboy Jazz Festival.
The concert is free. Bring a cooler with food and drinks, a large blanket to sit on and meet us on the left side of the stage. We suggest parking on 6th Street and enter on 6th Street.
LACMA is located in central Los Angeles, midway between downtown and Santa Monica, 1/2 mile south of the Grove. The concert is in the Hancock Park area on the LACMA grounds. There is street parking available on 6th Street or you can park in the museum parking lot located at 6th Street and LACMA Way ($10 flat fee to park).
