August 11, 2011 (Rancho San Diego) -- NovaMenco, a National Smooth Jazz Flamenco Fusion group will take center stage at the Water Conservation Garden at Cuyamaca College on Saturday, August 13 at 6:30 p.m.


The Water Conservation Garden’s outdoor amphitheater and 5-acres of beautiful, drought-tolerant plants will be the dramatic backdrop for NovaMenco’s soul-stirring music that blends rhythms of jazz, pop, and the echoes of the ancient Byzantine to produce a modern Mediterranean sound that is truly their own. Special guest host Lenny B. from Smooth FM 98.1 will be hosting the event, which opens with the Gipsy Kings tribute band “Los Reyes Del Ritmo” and also features flamenco dance group “Sabor Andaluz” dancing throughout the evening.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Selection of wines, light ethnic fare, and NovaMenco CD’s will be available for purchase during the concert. Tickets may be purchased via the web at or by calling 619-519-1963.
