Amor Eterno Arte is honored to welcome Osundun Arts + Cultural Exchange Saturday August 5th from 7-11pm. Celebrating the beauty of diversity, Osundun is fundraising for their annual Oakland festival. Live music by Kolamanjaro, tacos and raffle!
The Osundun festival features artists, musicians and dancers from East Oakland, Mexico, Hawaii and Africa. The goal of Osundun is accomplished through various events and programs that include annual festival, health and wellness, cultural education, environmental awareness and social-cultural activities and international excursions. Through these activities, Osundun intends to promote understanding and cooperation among diverse cultures, recognize and assist artists and cultural groups to advance their quests thereby enriching the community, youth and adults, locally and internationally.
Osundun is a Non-Profit Organization operating as a platform for hosting cultural, educational and artistic expressions. It is a platform through which local and international artists, musicians, and socio-cultural groups, of various genres, can display, perform, present and impress their talents and purpose to the community and the public at large. This is accomplished through participation in various events organized by Osundun which often collaborates with other entities including non-profit organizations.
Kolamanjaro & his Yoruba Heritage Ensemble is where the classic Yoruba song-meter meets the modern. It is indeed, the crossroad at which yesterday's rhythms intersect with today's sounds to propel the future of cultural arts entertainment forward.
It is a bridge that seeks to link Yoruba from the source with others far and widely dispersed around the globe and across the Diaspora. Kola Adesokan, (aka Kolaman or Kolamanjaro) describes his music as Juju-Fusion, a style which he branded Rhythm-N-Groove™ of Afrika, which is another variety of Afro-Beat genre founded by Fela Kuti of Nigeria. Kolamanjaro is a jazzily rhythmic sound whose soul is deeply rooted in authentic Yoruba heritage experience.

posted Jun 30, 2017, 2:22 PM by David Vargas

We would like to assist Stanford Live to introduce vocalist Betsayda Machado and La Parranda El Clavo, performers of Afro-Venezuelan music from the Barlovento region of Venezuela. Betsayda is a wonderful singer and charismatic performer and La Parranda El Clavo is an excellent ensemble.

Just before the concert, Stanford Live will be presenting a free workshop on Afro-Venezuelan dance with La Parranda that should be a lot of fun, and we are all trying to spread the word far and wide.

We hope everyone can enjoy this wonderful experience on Saturday, July 15, 2017!
