Yerba Buena Gardens has FREE concerts every year from May through October. Lead by executive and artistic director Linda Lucero, Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents a wide variety of music and other performances.

This year the opening concert of the Festival was the world class Pedro Martínez Group, which I consider one of the best if not the best Afro-Cuban Music Group in the world today, with Cuban superstar Issac Delgado and his talented son, Issacito Delgado.  This highly anticipated concert brought out thousands of Cuban music lovers who were treated to the Cuban music event of the year.

Here are some of the photos I took at this incredible event.
