Two sets of beautiful music in a beautiful place. The UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens Redwood Grove is one the most scenic venues in the bay area -- an amphitheater with 100 year old redwood trees as the backdrop! Gojogo will be performing a live soundtrack to the Masters of Russian Animation favorite : Hedgehog in the Fog. Ramon & Jessica - eclectic singer-songwriter duo Gojogo - classical/jazz/Indian chamber fusion - Redwood Grove door opens at 5:00 pm - Ticket includes admission to the Garden before 4:30 pm - Space is limited and the show may sell out early - BYO picnic, drinks, and warm clothing (it may get chilly) - Alcohol Not Allowed === Ramon & Jessica, a boy-girl duo from San Francisco, write deceptively simple songs on the edge of folk and pop. On their exquisite early albums, Ramon & Jessica and Handyman’s Honeymoon, violinist Dina Maccabee and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Olsen achieved an uncanny lockstep with sophisticated harmonies, bold arrangements and subtle lyrics. Then Jesse moved to the desert, forcing the pair to conspire at a distance. With their third album Fly South, the newly reunited pair have produced their closest collaboration yet, working their signature toy piano and Casio keyboards into a rich texture provided by a number of the Bay Area’s finest musicians. Whether they are singing about love, death, the weather—or nothing at all—Ramon & Jessica will disarm your heart, and delight your mind. www.ramonandjessica.com === Gojogo is an unusual quartet that combines the Western sounds of classical and jazz with the rhythmic traditions of India. Founded in 2003, they are dedicated to creating innovative music that is accessible and captivating. Gojogo performs original music composed collaboratively by the four performers, each drawing upon a different musical tradition and training. Compositions feature improvisation over structured forms, creating opportunities for spontaneity and a medium to present each unique instrument. The result is a sound that defies the borders of any specific genre.

“~~ Rated 4/5 Stars ~~ Adding up the diverse backgrounds of the members of Gojogo hints at the San Francisco collective's enchanting intersection of Middle Eastern traditionalism and avant-garde jazz classicism. On the largely instrumental 28,000 Days, the melodic fusion makes for a rewarding exercise in which the cerebral material doesn't consume the listener in an extroverted manner. Rather, the quartet's textured compositions force you to come to them. Apart from the measured performances of its participants, they key to Gojogo's elegance resides with production values and patient tempos that prize tonal nuance. A majority of the understated pieces incrementally unfold, taking small steps that shade honeyed romantic themes and cautiously optimistic moods.”
