Some of the Bay Area’s most prominent artists have joined the effort to defend the beautiful hillsides of Richmond’s El Sobrante Valley. The benefit concert will feature:

Kitka: an internationally acclaimed women’s vocal arts ensemble inspired by traditional songs and vocal techniques from Eastern Europe.
Gamelan Sekar Jaya: a world renowned performing arts company specializing in the music and dance of Bali
Keith Terry and Friends: Founder and director of the International Body Music
Festivals. “A unique master of percussive motion” SF Chronicle
The Hogan Brothers, with special guests Omega Rae & Luq Frank: R&B, Funk and
Latin music from one of the Bay’s hottest bands.
In January 2017 the Richmond City Council adopted the Richmond Hills Initiative which permanently protects the beautiful open space hillsides of the El Sobrante Valley that border on Wildcat Canyon Regional Park. The Initiative represented the two year effort of dozens of volunteers who gathered thousands of signatures to qualify the measure.
Now the city is being sued by developers and land speculators to overturn the initiative. The Friends of the Richmond Hills, working with the Sierra Club Foundation, needs to raise $15,000 in order to help pay for the legal defense of the Initiative. The developers have deep pockets. We have a wonderful community and hyper-talented, committed artists, working together to save our precious hills. Join us on Nov. 10!
