When you were a kid, your parents shoved limp veggies, Crayola-hued turtlenecks, and Sunday school down your throat, claiming it was all "good for you." But now the community is your daddy, and when the powers-that-be put together a show, you best believe it's going to do your body good. Thursday, as part of the Coral Gables Congregational Church and the Community Arts Program's 2008 Summer Concert Series, you'll be force-fed buckets and buckets of Filipino jazz chanteuse Charmaine Clamor.
Born in Subic-Zambales, Philippines, Clamor is the originator of jazzipino a hybrid that combines her native folk music with the smooth and easy nuances of a genre borne by greats such as Charlie Parker and Alice Coltrane. You might know the shooby-doos and baba-dees well, but after a night of American classics and your new soon-to-be-faves, youll be Clamor-ing for more. Not to worry youll be able to take home her critically acclaimed second album, Flippin Out. Check her out at www.charmaineclamor.com. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $35. Call 305-448-7421, ext. 33, or visit www.communityartsprogram.org for more details about the concert series.
