Karamo Susso at La Peña in Berkeley

Karamo is a virtuoso of the kora, the 21-stringed West African harp. He always puts on a good show with his band, and La Peña is a wonderful, intimate venue. For those interested in having dinner at 6:30 at Cafe Valparaiso, attached taqueria, send me an email, and I'll add you to our reservation.

    Matthew, I went to La Pena and loved the show. This was my first meetup event. But I couldn't find any meet-up people! I asked one or two people who said no, so I was embarrassed. Now that I see 23 attended, I can't believe it. It was a small audience, a small and wonderful venue.

    Please explain.

      By the way are you going to the African music event at Yoshi's in SF? I reserved. I met those guys on Youtube and fell in love with them. A lot of my affairs start on Youtube.

    The music was great fun and outstanding, and I love the venue. Lots of dancing! They're doing a gig at Ashkenaz at the end of the month--it's a whole band.

    There was not much interest in dinner, so I have not made any reservations. Hope to see you all at the concert!

      Hi Matthew, I seem to have wrenched my back while cleaning out my car....I will have to wait and see how I feel before I commit to world music and dance tonight. If I don't make it, I will see you next time.-Peter Acker

    Hi All, Looking forward to the show. If anyone else wants to join us for dinner at Cafe Valparaiso (right next door to the performance space), let me know so I can add you to the reservation. I'll wear my West African shirt with a VERY busy blue and white pattern. Check out the music at http://karamosussomusic.com/
