Our last Saturday Mingling before the Summer break! Join us for a community celebration on June 22nd, at 7pm at the Jamii Hub, with live music, dancing, food and arts. Nickeshia Garrick, our lead artist and curator for "JUNE at Jamii" hosts the event! With a feel of a community party, we share food together, enjoy Nickeshia's dancing, surprise performance by fellow community members and live music by Paula Sofía Morales (vocals & guitar), Dhaivat Jani (percussion) and Hiro Tanaka (upright bass). Paula Sofía and her band play soft Latin folk music, featuring gentle acoustic melodies and heartfelt vocals. We promise an evening filled with shared creativity and camaraderie! Join us on Saturday, June 22nd, at 7pm at The Jamii Hub!


Heads-up: We will be on a break in July and August. Jamii's indoor activities & workshop series will commence in September 2024.
