Surprise! We have even more great #livemusic on the way!
Mark Friday, May 20th and Saturday, May 21st on your calendar as the FREE-admission Summer Festivals’ Block Party (Dundas Street between Richmond and Talbot) earns its street cred with guest artists that know how to bring choice Afrobeat, funk, folk, salsa and reggae rhythms to the party. The hours are 4:00 PM until 11:00 PM on both days, which gives you enough time to check out the new event’s artisan market and beer garden.
One of the weekend’s musical headliners is the prodigiously talented Cuban band Cimafunk, acclaimed for its intoxicating mix of Afro-Cuban dance music and 1970s American funk-and-soul. Under lead vocalist Erik Rodríguez, this is a group that takes it to the next level with a sound that would feel right at home in either New York’s famed Apollo Theater or Havana’s hottest dance clubs.
See you there!
