Drum roll, please!
We are so excited to announce that Mama Earth will be part of the historic Ford Theatres grand re-opening season after complete renovation with new stage, new lights and new sound!
Common Culture: Across the Water is a concert that celebrates intersections of island culture in Los Angeles. The concert brings together internationally-known, critically-acclaimed musicians and dancers to honor local living legends based in places like Leimert Park and Inglewood.
The musicians, including Mark de Clive-Lowe featuring Nia Andrews, Jungle Fire featuring Afrodyete and Jamie Allensworth and Brit Manor featuring Captain Planet will combine reggae, Afrobeat, electronic soul, pop and R&B. The dancers, Kimberly Miguel Mullen and Kati Hernandez will interlace traditional Polynesian and Afro-Cuban movement into the show to honor legendary Cuban performer, Maestro Lazaro Galarraga.
Stay tuned for more artists + special guests!
A show like this, before an audience of this magnitude, is a precious gem in Los Angeles. Tickets & Info
