Monthly Community Gathering: A night filled with music, dance, and other art forms!


May 2024

May 25, 2024

Lead Artist: Takako Segawa

Come together at Jamii for our 'Saturday Mingling'  on May 25th at 7pm with live music, dancing, food and arts. Takako Segawa, our lead artist and curator for "MAY at Jamii" will host the event! With a feel of a community party, we'll share food together, enjoy Takako's dancing, surprise performance by fellow community members and live music by Germaine (vocals), Martin (keys) and Rebekah (guitar). The music will be a fusion of three different musical worlds, with the band members each bringing their own flair to create soul/ R&B/ folk covers of songs we know and love, and with some of Germaine’s original music. We promise an evening filled with shared creativity and camaraderie!
