The dark drama of Calexico's desert noir, a mix of traditional Latin sounds with Southwestern country, '50s jazz, and rock, “has proved that the borders between styles can be as blurrable, as mutable, and porous as those separating countries and cultures.” (Pitchfork) With the great Afro-Peruvian singer Susana Baca, whose “cool, distinct voice [is] as beautiful as any working in pop," (NY Times) and a wild collaboration between Mexican folklorists Radio Jarocho and the pan-African percussion and vocal group Akoko Nante Ensemble.

Baseball FieldsProspect Park

The Long Meadow Ballfields will be closed at Prospect Park for construction. The reconstruction of the Long Meadow Ballfields is a multi-phase project encompassing 34 acres of fields, paths and woodlands. The project incorporates contemporary storm water management techniques that support our goal of capturing and retaining storm water runoff. These improvements will also help to filter runoff before it enters our watercourse. Designed to revitalize the park’s sporting community, the first phase will restore Field One, pedestrian and bridle paths, drinking fountains, benches, and include new tree plantings.
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
