tomorrow night in takoma park – Ethnic Heritage Ensemble

i really like going to hear live music, but i can be really lazy about having to go into dc (or god forbid all the way to virginia) to go see a show. i absolutely love living in takoma park, but it does mean that i don’t see as much live music as i’d like. so i was excited to hear that tomorrow night there is going to be a “can’t miss” show just down the street from my house, at sangha. and the icing on the cake is that the sangha (like all montgomery county venues) is smoke-free.

i hear that the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble’s annual february show in the dc area is not to be missed. this year’s show is tomorrow (saturday) night at sangha at 8pm and features “special guest” Fareed Haque on guitar. the ensemble “blends traditional African rhythmic and melodic sensibilities with popular African American musical forms.” sounds cool. according to the press release, Fareed Haque “deftly blends Flamenco, Persian, and European classical, with jazz and funk influences.” sounds really cool. even worth coming in from DC for. you can go for a bite to eat across the street at Middle East Cuisine or Mark’s Kitchen before the show, and takoma park is both metro accessible and parking friendly. it’s about time takoma park got a little more love as a destination. it’s more than just a bunch of birkenstock-wearing ex-hippies you know. (not that there is anything wrong with birkenstocks or ex-hippies — it’s just not my bag, man.)
