PLG Arts Jazz at the InkWell

Dr Mambo and the ExplosionPLG Arts Jazz at the Ink Well Cafe presents Dr. Mambo and his Explosion Experience  Thursday, March 10, from 8-10:30. The Experience Ensemble covers the bases from Caribbean sounds, reggae, salsa, Latin Jazz to Soukous and High Life as the rhythmic engines that drives the Experience Jazz extravaganza. They are firm believers in a Ghanaian proverb “SANKOFA, wonkyir” which, when translated, means “There’s nothing wrong with going back to your roots.”

You can hear a preview of this great sound at Dr. Mambo’s website. Then come hear it in person—and try some of the great soul food while you’re at it.

PLG Arts Jazz at the Ink Well presents great music the second Thursday of every month. Starting in the warmer weather, you can hear more great music on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month through July. Upcoming shows: April 14—Jeff King. April 28—David Aaron and Short Memory. Aren’t we lucky to have this so close by?
