yerba buena

So yesterday we went to the native american music fest at yerba buena gardens. lots of good music, pomo dancers, powwow dancers, and some beautiful mohawk singing, (from some rather dapper mohawks.)

Then we noticed a big crowd of people at the nearby theater and it turns out that the audience and performers had been turned out  of the building holding the ethnic dance festival b/c of a gas leak on folsom street. so there was a huge group of indonesian and desi dancers being taught a dance routine on the spot; a group of senegalese drummers, and my favorite, a freestyle w/ a konnokol singer and one of the african guys w/ a hand drum. awesome.
