About the Program
Celebrate the twentieth anniversary season of the Skirball’s annual Sunset Concerts, a series dedicated to drawing music fans from across greater Los Angeles by showcasing both rising stars and musical greats from around the world. The new season once again features an eclectic lineup of artists who tap into traditional roots music for inspiration while forming their own unique, contemporary sounds.
As always, the six Thursday night concerts are presented free of charge in the Skirball’s one-of-a-kind hillside setting. In the intimate, yet spectacular courtyard, audiences sing, dance, and gather at the foot of the stage to engage with the performers.
The lineup is as follows:
July 21: Thao and the Get Down Stay Down—Bay Area alt folk-rock artists
July 28: Songhoy Blues—West African desert bluesmen
August 4: Thalma de Freitas—One of LA’s best in Brazilian samba and jazz
August 11: M.A.K.U. Soundsystem—Colombian funk fusion players
August 18: Music Maker Blues Revue (LA debut!)—Southern boogie all-stars
August 25: Shai Tsabari and the Middle East Groove All Stars—The next generation of Middle Eastern rock musicians
