Ruth Hellier and Son Jarocho Ensemble

The World Music Series is co-presented by the UCSB MultiCultural Center and the Ethnomusicology Program in the Department of Music. Join us every Wednesday at noon in the UCSB Music Bowl (unless otherwise noted) for FREE performances by some of the best world music artists in the Santa Barbara area!

In the event of rain, World Music Series events will be moved to Music Room 1145, adjacent to the Music Bowl. Signs will be posted near the Music Bowl on the day of the event notifying audience members of the change.
