Enjoy world rhythms with Liza Carbé and JP Durand (two founding members of the acclaimed Southern California band Incendio), a performance that will showcase a powerful ensemble of twin-guitar melodies. The evening opens with Mountain Eagle from the Washeshu nation of Lake Tahoe and local musician Angèle Carroll. End the night dancing under the stars!
