Ain’t Got No Jeep and My Camel Died
Israeli Musician Yair Dalal will play the ancient oud, ancestor of the guitar, and will talk about his experiences living with Bedoin nomads in the Negev and Sinai deserts and the music created there – the instruments, the songs, the people, the stories and the inspirations coming from that life.

Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and LA Flamenco present:
A Night of Spanish Romance
The Grammy Award-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (LAGQ) is one of the most multifaceted groups in any genre. LAGQ is comprised of four uniquely accomplished musicians bringing a new energy to the concert stage with programs ranging from bluegrass to Bach. As a special treat tonight, they will be joined by a troupe of fabulous dancers from LA Flamenco (Choreography by Wendy Castellanos-Wolf) and mesmerizing mezzo-soprano, Janelle DeStefano. Their performance will include: El Baile De Luíz Alonzo by Gerónimo Giménez, Introduction and Fandango by Luigi Boccherini, La Soirée Dans Grenade by Claude Debussy, Carmen Suite by Georges Bizet, Siete Canciónes Populares Españolas by Manuel De Falla (Arranged by Oxnard College's Scott Wolf) and culminating with a dramatic production of Manuel de Falla’s ballet El Amor Brujo. A riveting tale of love and sorcery, this spellbinding work brings the passion of Spain’s gypsy spirit to life.
@ El Camino College on September 24, at 8pm. Tickets are $26 (Student tickets are $15 at the door!)
