By Dolores Quintana

The vibrant rhythms of Afro-Cuban music fused with the eclectic sounds of a world-renowned DJ will come together for an unforgettable performance on Sunday, August 27, 2023, at 4 PM, at Plummer Park. In partnership with Grand Performances and supported by an arts grant from the City of West Hollywood, this event promises an exhilarating musical experience. This is the Summer Sounds concert that was originally scheduled for August 20 but was postponed by the arrival of Tropical Storm Hilary and has been rescheduled to Sunday, August 27.
