Listen to the world beat stylings of Wagogo on June 13.
Part of the Summer Nights Concert Series.
Wagogo, born, raised and loved in Albuquerque, NM, is an ecclectic group of musicians that make a rhythmic cocktail out of their Chicano influences, Northern Mexico folk songs, warm calypso island grooves, and the captivating spirit music of Zimbabwe. Their lyrics posses an equally enriching quality, being composed mostly by lead singer Armando Ortega, in a blend of Spanish, English, and the Shona language of Zimbabwe. With such a diverse repertoire, Wagogo inspires a multigenerational crowd to dance and sing, and even gets the old folks weeping with its dedication to preserving the traditional roots of music, in addition to exploring new sounds.
Gates open at 6 p.m. and concerts begin at 7 p.m., rain or shine. Both the Aquraium and Botanic Garden will be open until 8 p.m.
Hula hoop with the Ritzy Rouge Hula Hoop Troupe from 6-8 p.m.
Blankets, lawn chairs and picnics are welcome, but please do not bring glass containers or alcoholic beverages into the park. Food, beer and wine are available for purchase.
