The Rhythm Foundation has been presenting for 30 years international artists and quality community-based programs on the occasion of concerts, events and festivals. They will be the partner of the French Embassy’s Cultural Services for the celebration of the Fête de la Musique 2017. During the night of Wednesday, June 21st, they invite you to celebrate the beginning of summer in music, from 7pm to 11pm at Wynwood Yard, 56 NW 29th St, Miami. For the opening act, Mo’booty, a psychedelic, surf-noir Francophone band, will cast shades of punk over the slowly flooding Miami landscape. Their sound is “heavy, thick, loud, sometimes noisy but always hits with a purpose.” Tamboka, a musical group inspired by Gypsy and Latin musical traditions, will then perform, inviting you to feel, love, live, and vibe with them through the tropical and earthy sounds impregnated in their hands and voices. In Wynwood Yard, be prepared to “free your mind, as your soul follows”!
The French Horn at Lagniappe, 9pm-midnight The French Horn Collective is an energetic and progressive band that performs an eclectic variety of Gypsy Jazz, Swing, and original French music. Led by Parisian musician, multi-instrumentalist, composer, singer and songwriter Vincent Raffard, the diverse international group consists of five highly talented musicians from a myriad of musical backgrounds and countries. On the occasion of the Fête de la Musique, they will perform at Lagniappe, a hipster’s Brooklyn-styled wine bar hosting live musicians every night. The spacious pack patio area will enable you to enjoy your wine and to savor your cheese while listening to French music, a real Parisian experience!
