Home » Jamming Jean Live Outdoor Concert Funkadesi
Named “Best World Music Group” by the Chicago Reader and “Most Outstanding Band” by the Chicago Music Awards, Chicago-based Funkadesi world music group blends Indian music — bhangra, Bollywood, Indian folk — with reggae, funk, and Afro-Caribbean grooves. This award-winning multicultural collection of healers and educators emphatically personifies their motto: “One family, many children… insisting we all belong.” The concert will take place Sept. 17, 5 – 7 pm outside of the Levy Senior Center at 300 Dodge Street in Evanston. Thanks to generous support from the Levy Senior Center Foundation, this concert is free and open to the public. These lively concerts appeal to all ages. Food from Cocina Azteca and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. Guests are asked to bring blankets/chairs and can also bring their own beverages for this outdoor event.
