St. Paul, Minn. — Their performances are nothing short of life affirming.

The Grammy-nominated Imani Winds bring a full-color spectrum to their music making, blending the creamy and spritely sound of reeds with the pure tone of the flute and the spicy sweet honkings of the horn, creating a flavorful gumbo the is stylish and joy-filled.

Audiences left the Imani Winds Music in the Park Series performance last November smiling from ear-to-ear.

Highlights from that performance are in this week's Regional Spotlight
