Greetings!

March madness kicks-off with bright colors, big moves, and the deep rhythmic beats of Bale Folclorco da Bahia! March also brings 5 siblings who all play classical piano, 5 Browns.

Also featured in March are the best of Chico's own dancers in Keeping Dance Alive, performing 3 shows! Then, hailing all the way from Sweden, Vasen performs classical strings and Celtic Pop!

Maya Angelou's
words of strength and inspiration will be emanating from the Laxson stage on March 22nd, and 2 days later, world music legends, Habib Koite, Oliver Mtkudzi, and Afel Bocoum will play a variety of guitars together as Acoustic Africa!

Be sure to visit our photo gallery and check out photos from the 4 Bitchin' Babes at KZFR radio, Keeping Dance Alive!'s run through rehearsal, promotion of the Harlem Gospel Choir at KKXX Life Radio station, and the Brubeck Brothers open piano rehearsal in Laxson.

From world to classical, March will be our most magnificent month yet!
