Getting back to the school routine can be rough – we get it! So why not kick up your feet and leave the cooking and entertainment to us? Join us for a delicious dinner catered by NURA Portland and a live musical performance by Bondeko, as part of the Music at the J series. This family-friendly event is your chance to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones. Get back into the groove at the JCA!


We are very pleased to present Bondeko, a proudly international and proudly multigenerational band from Portland, Maine. Bondeko is the unlikely musical collaboration of an Albanian crooner and folklorist, a traditional Guinean drummer and a French singer-songwriter. With only a few words of common language, their sound cannot exactly be described as world music as it belongs nowhere outside of the immigrant community of Portland, Maine… Their live shows are celebrations of the joy of sharing space with people from very different cultures. 

Presented in part by the Azerbaijan Society of Maine, and the Cantor Kurt Messerschmidtt Memorial Fund.
