Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca present the Afro-Latin Diaspora, connecting back to Mother Africa via the Cuban clave rhythm. Lemvo is 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.

Bright horns, fat bass lines, amazing percussion and melodies that linger for days - be prepared for a street party that must be danced through!

Salsa Marin partners with The Osher Marin JCC for this event and will be providing pre-concert salsa dance instruction.

The venue offers a pop-up restaurant, Kid Zone with playground & hands-on project and festival shopping made possible by Good Will Industries.
