Info

Rain date: June 21. Concert features Zikina, a group that brings together the linguistic and musical diversity of traditional Ugandan folk music with a wide palette of American musical sounds. One of Zikina's members, Gideon Ampeire, is an international performer and instrument-maker, and has been teaching about traditional Ugandan music and culture in Hartford schools for many years. At Zikina's performance, audiences can hear how East African instruments like the enanga, kalimba, and adungu merge with the African diasporic traditions of rock, jazz, and funk into something new.

The concert will take place on the beautiful CHS lawns at 1 Elizabeth St., Hartford. Grounds are open for seating and picnicking from 5 p.m., and the music begins at 6 p.m. All of the CHS outdoor concerts are free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and food, or pick up a delicious meal or snacks from the Baba Ghanoush food truck, which will be on site from 4:30-7 p.m.
