KCRW’s World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl featuring Rodrigo y Gabriela & DeVotchKa Hosted By Raul Campos
September 20, 2020 • 6:00 pm(All times are in PDT)
The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and KCRW present an on-air series featuring previously recorded live concerts from KCRW’s World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl.
Acoustic guitar-shredding duo Rodrigo y Gabriela’s charismatic chemistry and dynamic interplay have made them long-time Bowl favorites. DeVotchKa’s blend of cabaret, norteño, punk, and traditional Eastern European music has made them one of the most instantly recognizable groups in the world.
Created in partnership with the LA Phil, KCRW’s World Festival has been bringing an eclectic array of artists from around the world to the Hollywood Bowl stage for 20 years. Following the cancellation of the 2020 Bowl season due to COVID-19, the LA Phil and KCRW collaborate to present highlights of past World Festivals through an exclusive series of archival concerts to be broadcast on Sundays, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., from August 23 to October 11. Join us early at 6:00 p.m. for a 30-minute DJ set inspired by each concert.
Additional featured artists in upcoming episodes include: Cibo Matto (June 26, 2011), Flying Lotus (June 17, 2018), Jimmy Cliff (July 25, 2010), Little Dragon (June 17, 2018), Santigold (June 21, 2009), Sigur Rós (September 24, 2016), St. Vincent (August 30, 2015), and Toro y Moi (June 16, 2019).
