Jeff Smith 4 p.m., Dec. 20
As part of the Friends of the Escondido Public Library Second Saturday series, world music ensemble Zimbeat will bring their San Diego meets South Africa sound to the Turrentine Room.
Zimbeat combines traditional Shona mbira music, a modern Zimbabwe–style marimba ensemble, fierce polyrhythmic percussion, and afro–beat horn lines. Their vocal numbers, sung in Shona and English, relay a message that is positive, peaceful, and powerful.
