Mamalama To Perform At the Vanderbilt Mansion Gardens
Contact: Allan Dailey, 845-229-7770
The musical group Mamalama will be performing on September 18 at 2:00 PM in the formal gardens at the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site in Hyde Park. Their unique sound is based on an international combination of Anglo-European folk, South American, West African and Native American music using some exotic instruments.
Mamalama has performed at clubs and venues throughout the Northeast, including "natural" locations such as caves, mountaintops, waterfalls and farms as well as gardens. The terraced gardens of the Vanderbilt estate will be the perfect background to showcase this singular group.
Before the concert, there will be a 90 minute tour of the Vanderbilt landscape beginning at the Vanderbilt Visitor Center at 12:30 PM. The concert and the landscape tour is free of charge.
Come and enjoy an afternoon of music in a spectacular setting. Seating will not be provided. Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets. In the event of rain, the concert will be cancelled.
