Yolo Mambo bring its world music to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday at the Davis Farmers Market in Central Park, Third and C streets in Davis.
Yolo Mambo’s transglobal rhythms will transport listeners to Brazil, Cuba, Peru, Cape Verde, France, Spain, New Zealand and across our country.
A Picnic in the Park favorite, the band blends spicy cha-cha, jazz, bossa nova, samba, salsa, and folk with the dynamic vocals of Catherine LeBlanc in languages from all over the world.
Completing the instrumental and vocal backing are jazz and world music veterans Phil Summers on Spanish guitar, Carla Campbell on percussion and Steve O’Neill on string bass.
Music starts at 5 p.m. and is sponsored by the Davis Food Co-op.
The market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday. Even though the calendar will soon turn to autumn, there’s summer produce aplenty, such as melons, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, greens, corn, avocados, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb. Crafts are at the north end of Central Park, near Fourth and C streets.
Bring a picnic from home or buy dinner from one of the many vendors. Davis Soroptimists will pour Sudwerk beer and local wine, with proceeds going to local charities.
Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenwich Acres and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
