Music on the Porch: Orquestra GarDel. With a dizzying repertoire that includes salsa dura, jazz, and Afro-Cuban-inflected originals, Durham’s Orquesta GarDel is one of the most respected salsa groups in North Carolina. Co-founded in 2006 by UNC ethnomusicology professor David Garcia, the group boasts a dynamic roster that combines Latino/a music veterans with African and Anglo-American music students. You can enjoy a sample of their sound on Facebook or on their website. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while! This event is free and open to the public. Parking is free after 5:00 pm in the Park Place parking lot, approximately two blocks from the Love House & Hutchins Forum.
