Cambridge University Botanic Garden
On Wednesday evenings in July Cambridge University Botanic Garden rings to the sound of live music when we present Sounds Green – the best in open-air music. Bring a rug and a picnic; open to all ages. Food, ice creams and drinks on sale.
Making a welcome return to Sounds Green is the four-piece band Afrosamba. Fronted by Brazilian born Pilo Adami, the group encompasses Afro Brazilian Jazz, Samba and Bossa Nova. Joined by seasoned musicians from Mozambique, Brazil and the UK, influences range from João Gilberto’s harmonic complexities and Airto Moreira’s experimental rhythms to the laid back music of Jorge Ben Jor.
Music from 6.15 to 7.30pm; garden closes at 8.00pm.
Retiring collection towards cost of concerts – for admission prices to garden see their website
