Dendê & Band: Summer Courtyard Concert

- Free and Open to the Public!

As part of the 31st annual Summer Courtyard Concert Series, the Arts Council of Princeton and Princeton Shopping Center present Dende & Band. Dendê is a percussionist, singer, composer, bandleader, teacher, and multi-instrumentalist. He’s been a professional musician since the age of 14, when he appeared in the frontline of Timbalada, Carlinhos Brown’s superstar percussion ensemble. Since 2001, he’s been developing his solo career, splitting his time between the US and Bahia. Dendê & Band have cultivated a unique sound where Afro-Brazilian traditions like samba de roda and candomble have been seamlessly melded with world rhythms like rumba, afrobeat and mbalax.

Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair! In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be held inside the Arts Council’s Kristina Johnson Pop-Up Studio at the Princeton Shopping Center.

301 N. Harrison Street, Princeton NJ
Ample parking is available at the Princeton Shopping Center.
