Viernes Nights at OMCA with Orchestra Gold

Viernes Nights at OMCA | Live Music by Orchestra Gold, TropiCali Dancehall Lesson w/ Aimee, DJ set by Teao Sense, Gallery Chats, Care Van: Personal Care Stations

Agosto 16 from 5:00 pm 9:00 pm


Join us for another sensational installation of Viernes Nights at OMCA! This Viernes, OMCA is honored to welcome Orchestra Gold to the OMCA Garden stage. Spearheaded by the dynamic Mariam Diakite—known for her raw, hypnotic vocals and poetic Bambara lyrics—Orchestra Gold pays homage to Malian musical traditions while crafting a fierce new sound with heavy swinging rhythms, a funky fresh brass section, and cosmic guitar licks. Their most recent album, Medicine, mobilizes dance-inducing music to invoke the spirit and spread healing and community. DJ Teao Sense and their highly eclectic stylings with music from all over the world also celebrate how our diversity can create powerful and groovy waves. 

The TropiCali Dancehall Lesson w/ Aimee will keep your mind and body activated as this workshop focuses on not only the signature steps of Dancehall, but also its culture, history, and context.

In addition to an outstanding event experience, every Viernes Nights at OMCA also offers guests a well-rounded gallery experience with Gallery Chats. Unlike the traditional museum tour, Gallery Chats invites visitors to chat, ask questions and connect with our OMCA facilitators who combine content knowledge with lived experience to encourage meaningful dialogue and fresh interpretations of our exhibitions. 

Limited $10 flat rate parking for Viernes Nights is available in the OMCA Garage until 10 pm. Learn more about getting to the museum.
