This is a free concert and it goes from 7 to 9 pm .Call 312.222.1442, if dining at Rumba or just walk in.
It is Saturday, and you may be thinking about a good plan to enjoy this fabulous Supermoon evening. If you need ideas, let me suggest a couple of things that you probably have never done. How about going to an event that celebrates the Spring Equinox, the full moon, and the largest moon of 2011 with cool music and healing workshops? If you are curious, then come and recharge your soul, mind, and body with the first ever Healing Arts Festival tonight at MultiKulti in the Wicker Park neighborhood (1000 N Milwaukee). There will be healing workshops from 6 to 9 pm and later that night, you get the chance to hear the newest band to hit Chicago with their Rumba Reggae Fusion: Nu Bambu. For more information about this event, click here.
If you rather do something around good food, dance performances, help a good cause, and go to bed early, then come to a Peruvian-Mexican fundraising event (also in Wicker Park) that a Loyola student is organizing to raise funds to go back to school. It runs from 6 to 10pm. The ticket costs $15 and includes a Mexican-Peruvian 4 course menu and Peruvian Folk dance, music and Breakdance performances. The group I belong to, Peruvian Folk Dance center, will be performing at 8:30 pm. For more information about this event, click here or call 773.673.7292
Have a wonderful Saturday!
Tonight is the first presentation of the newest band to enter the Chicago world’s music scene: Nu Bambu. This is a bilingual, street-smart band that has cutting-edge lyrics with a twist that fuse together different styles such as rumba and reggae. The sounds of Nu Bambu are as diverse as our cross-cultural musicians, who come from Jamaica, France, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Puerto Rico, Cuba and the United States. Strong Latin and Reggae flavors, pitch-bending trumpet and potent bass and drum lines give the songs a unique progressive flavor along with conscious-raising, bilingual thought- provoking lyrics that morphs into hip cutting-edge music for a new generation. This musical fusion is very contagious and rhythmic, so be ready to dance when listening to our songs.
Get a taste of our music by clicking on this link, and come see us perform live tonight at Silvie’s Lounge in the Ravenswood neighborhood at 10 p.m.
Address: 1902 W. Irving Park Rd. Chicago, IL 60613

We will also be performing this Saturday March 19 at 10 pm at the Healing Arts Festival and Supermoon Reggae Party at Multi Kulti (1000 N Milwaukee) in Wicker Park. Hope to see you all there.
