Music en la Calle

Saturday June 25, 2022 @ 1:00pm

Come see us this weekend! We’ll be at MUSIC EN LA CALLE 2022 by Bodhi Tree Concerts at 1:00 pm this Saturday June 25th at Tierra Central on the corner of 41st and University Avenue. In 2021, this was the very first event that we did after a year of lockdown. For some of us, it was the first time hitting a real taiko in so long, and you could really feel the joy even despite the challenge of exerting this much energy again . The audience members even said it felt like we were just bursting out of that difficult period and bringing the crowd along with us!

We are very grateful to Bodhi Tree for providing that window for our team to re-emerge last year, so we’re quite honored and excited to return to this community on Saturday. See you there!

Music en la Calle – FREE all-day, Multi-Cultural Music Festival
Naruwan Performance Time: 1:00 – 1:30 pm
Location: Tierra Central, 41st and University Avenue
