“Tropic of Cancer Concert Series: Love, theory, thought, practice, prayer, art and health.
Tropic of Cancer Concert Series takes place an hour’s drive north of the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Come up coast. Gaze at the Pacific. A brand new highway will bring you to Todos Santos, the small beach town. Honored by the Mexican government as a Pueblo Mágico for its symbolism, legend, and history, the Tropic of Cancer runs almost straight through town. It trips your mind and injects you with inspiration as you cross over. It is said that you can feel its power in your thoughts, in your mood, in your art while you are there.
Todos Santos is an old mission town; it means All Saints. It’s a place where mystics, watermen, artists, and romantics live and work. It’s a town of merchants and shops, where the taco man presides nightly over his cart and steaming grill. A hotel worker sprays down dust from the dirt road in front of his manor. An elderly lady rocks back and forth on her front porch, watching the day begin only a block off downtown, unamazed by progress. Surrounded by farms and desert, Todos Santos is an oasis. It sits in the shadow of the great Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. Fresh Water rushes down from the high altitudes, beneath the earth and journeys a hundred miles only to emerge in the canals downtown.
A whale jumps off the coast as the sun sets west in warm golden winter on the southern Baja of California. The music is starting up. You can hear it from your porch as the waves crash behind you.

Tropic of Cancer Concert Series features three venues, and several shows weekly from emerging and established artists. New friendships will be made, new art discovered, new ways will be encountered. This is a concert series for and by artists. For the artist in everyone.”
