Imagine sitting under a canopy of Oaks with the Topa Topa mountains towering in the distance, and listening to the African sounds of Bassekou Kouyate and his ensemble, the inventive music of Jayme Stone (two time Juno award winning banjoist) and his quintet, and the haunting voices of Nevenka singing songs of Eastern Europe. These are the musical treasures that await you when these musicians take the stage for the 4th annual Ojai World Music Festival. Two fabulous nights of music that will transport you to another time, another place, music that is ancient, as well as bold and contemporary. Along with the concerts, there will be workshops and some very special events that will make the 4th Annual Ojai World Music Festival an experience not to be missed.
Two fabulous nights of music that will transport you to another time, another place. Music that is ancient, as well as bold and contemporary. A food truck offering delicious foods will be available both nights to encourage picnicking in the bowl.
Come Hear the World!

Beautiful Ojai Valley
In fast-paced Southern California, Ojai remains a place apart, suspended in time.
Tucked away from the world, like the mythical paradise of Shangri-La, Ojai offers a place to relax, wind back the clock and rediscover nature, art and yourself.
