City of San Fernando Final Concert of the Summer

Domingosiete Band Performance

This free concert is open to the public. The band Domingosiete was conceptualized as an outlet for some of the finest musicians in Los Angeles to explore and learn various Latin American roots music and compose original works. The Cuban Son of the oriente region/Son Montuno, the Colombian Cumbia, Mexican Norteño and Bolero are the styles that planted the group musically. What eventually developed is what is now a characteristic Domingosiete sound. Domingosiete has been acclaimed for its ability to transcend time, space, and culture and produce some of the most authentic music that hails from abroad and at home in Los Angeles. Bring your lawn chairs, picnics and friends to enjoy a summer concert in the park Showcasing Domingosiete San Fernando Recreational Park For more information: 818.8981290.
