CENTER STAGE: Leap Day Celebration

Center Stage, a celebration of performing arts in Sonoma County, brought to you by the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University.

It’s Leap Year! And our bonus day falls on a Saturday. Make the most of an extra Saturday by spending it at the Green! Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music with traditional son jarocho instruments. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring stories to build bridges between cultures and communities, and create ‘a world where many worlds fit.’

Leap Day will also include food trucks, face painters, a balloon artist, workshops/activities (k-12), and an on-stage workshop with Play Marimba!. Play Marimba! uses enormous African marimbas to play beautiful songs from around the world. Founded at Loma Vista Immersion Academy in Petaluma, the program offers a joyful music making experience for children, teens, and adults.

Pat talks with Jacob Yarrow, Executive Director of the Green Music Center, about the Leap Day Celebration:

The Leap Day Celebration featuring Las Cafeteras And Friends will take place on Saturday, February 29th! Two show times include: 2pm & 7:30pm. Tickets can be found here.
