Saturdays Off the 405 at the Getty Center ends its season on September 13 with a performance by Kan Wakan. Guests can enjoy outdoor music and drink in the refreshing exhibitions the Getty has to offer.

Los Angeles-based Kan Wakan emerged in early 2012, the musical brainchild of composer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Gueorgui I. Linev. The Bulgarian-born musician originally set out to create solely instrumental music inspired by his lifelong passion for classical minimalism, but the involvement of chanteuse Kristianne Bautista and producer/guitarist Peter Potyondy rapidly saw the project grow in both scope and purpose. As the core group built upon a truly variegated palette of influences, common musical themes began to manifest, including an epic but cinematic deep soul approach inspired by such icons as Bill Withers and Nina Simone.

For this concert they add strings to complement their startlingly original and utterly contemporary amalgam of psychedelic soul, electronica, and orchestral pop. LA Weekly recently named Kan Wakan among the “Los Angeles Bands about to Blow Up.” Their striking breadth of vision immediately places them among modern pop’s most beguiling and inventive new artists.

All performances take place in the Museum Courtyard from 6:00–9:00 p.m. Entrance is free, and parking is $10 after 5 p.m.

Food is available for purchase and a bar with beer, wine, and Getty-tinis is open in the Museum Courtyard. The Cafe will be open with seven food stations until 6:00 p.m. The Garden Terrace Cafe, which offers a selection of sandwiches and salads, will be open until 8:30 p.m. The Restaurant welcomes walk-ins for a fine dining experience from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Outside food is allowed, but no outside alcohol is permitted on site.

Saturday is also an opportunity to take advantage of the Getty’s “Pay Once, Park Twice,” program, where same-day visitors to the Getty Center and Getty Villa only need to pay for parking once.

Saturdays Off the 405 is produced by Spaceland Presents.
