Jazz, Classical and Celtic Concerts

World-renowned Afro-jazz orchestra Donkilo! opens the 2018 Music at Mead series on June 29, 7 pm, in Center Sandwich. This distinctly new fusion of jazz, funk and Afrobeat gets folks out of their seat and dancing in the aisles.

Donkilo! blends traditional African instruments like the Fula flute, 10-string kamalen’goni and djembe, with guitar, bass, sax, drums and keyboards — creating a sound that is fresh and daring. Dave Kobrensk engages the audience with stories of his travels in Africa working with native musicians and how he blends that musical heritage with American Jazz. This concert is very family friendly, so bring the kids and grandkids along!

Donkilo! features the region’s top musicians including: Randy Roos on guitar, Jared Steer on drums, Mike Rossi on bass, Jon Lorentz on saxophone, Tom Robinson on keyboards, and Dave Kobrenski on Fula flute, Kamalen’goni, and djembe.
