Cajun sounds and Indian rhythms are featured as the popular free SummerMusic series returns to the UC Davis Quad this year. Two shows designed to appeal to all ages will be presented by the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts.

The lineup includes Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys on Saturday, July 16, and Non Stop Bhangra on Saturday, Aug. 13. Both events begin at 7:30 p.m.; the Quad will open at 6 p.m. for picnicking. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited on campus.

“With these two exciting SummerMusic concerts, Mondavi Center fans can get a preview of two special themes in the 2011-12 season,” said Don Roth, Mondavi Center executive director. “Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys will give us a taste of Louisiana, tying in to our Spirit of New Orleans week in November; and Non Stop Bhangra will evoke our seasonlong focus on India, while getting the crowd on their feet and teaching audiences traditional Northern Indian Bhangra steps.”

Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys kick off SummerMusic on Saturday, July 16 with a Cajun dance party on the Quad.

Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys boast a wealth of musical talent, from Riley himself on the Cajun accordion to guitar dynamo Sam Broussard to fiddle virtuoso Kevin Wimmer. Their churning interpretations of Cajun French music from the backwaters of Southwest Louisiana have kept them justly celebrated for more than 20 years. They have received Grammy nominations for their recordings “Trace of Time” (1993), “Bon Reve” (2003) and “Live at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival” (2008).

Non Stop Bhangra’s performance will begin with a free dance lesson at 7:30 p.m. with Dholrhythms Dance Company, followed by dance performances accompanied by DJ Jimmy Love spinning an eclectic mix of Bhangra, hip hop, reggae and electronica.

This unique experience celebrates the beautiful, vibrant spirit of Bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music and dance. Bhangra is truly one of the most joyous and celebratory forms of dance, typically performed at festive occasions and celebrations, Roth said.
