Our picks for the week

........................................................................................................................................................................................
Michael Franti.

Michael Franti.

Combine sun, yoga, reggae and more, and you get Soulshine, the tour headed by Michael Franti & Spearhead, which is coming to the outdoor stage at Santa Fe Downs on Saturday.

Yoga with Gina Murdock, director of the Aspen Yoga Society, runs 3-4:30 p.m., accompanied by music from Franti, while the concert starts at 5:50 p.m. with Trevor Hall, followed by Brett Dennen (6:30), SOJA (7:25) and Franti (8:45).

J. Miguel da Silva’s “Retirantes” (Family Leaving), is a woodblock print that will be on display at the Gallery of Conscience.

Tickets are $20 for only the yoga ($10 if you also buy a concert ticket) and $47 ($64 for the front lawn seating) for the concert.

Go to ticketssantafe.org for concert tickets; holdmyticket.com for the yoga/concert package.

Or if your taste runs more to blues, rock and someone who’s been on the music scene for a half-century, check out Motor City madman Ted Nugent at Camel Rock Casino, where he’ll be playing songs from his latest album, “Shut Up & Jam!”

The concert is 8 p.m. today, with tickets $35-$40, available from camelrockcasino.com.

CROSSING BORDERS: To kick off International Folk Arts Week, the Museum of International Folk Art is holding an opening reception for its exhibit that examines what people gain and what they leave behind when they transplant their lives to another country.

“Between Two Worlds” will open to the public 1-4 p.m. Sunday in the Gallery of Conscience, with artists who contributed to the exhibit on hand from 2-4 p.m.

You also will get a chance to listen to Savor’s Cuban music, and sample Salvadoran, Indian, Japanese and West African food from local, immigrant-owned restaurants.

Museum admission is free to New Mexico residents on Sundays.

WINE-TASTING: You can get a sampling of a favored product of the grape this weekend at El Rancho de las Golondrinas, which will be holding its Santa Fe Wine Festival from noon-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Admission for adults is $13, which includes your own wine glass, while youths 13-20 are $5 – but they don’t get to sample the wine. Seventeen New Mexico wineries will be offering samples, as well as bottles for sale.

And, as is typical of this living history museum, music, food and crafts will also be offered.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT: Sometimes it’s tempting to try something out just because … well, don’t you want to broaden your horizons?

So consider Krishna Das and The Kirtan Wallah Tour and Concert at 7 p.m. July 10-11 at the Greer Garson Theater at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

Krishna Das.

Krishna Das.

Here’s what promoters say: “Layering traditional Hindu Kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called yoga’s ‘rock star.’”

Tickets are $36.50 in advance and $45 at the door, available at ticketssantafe.org or 988-1234.

Or tread the path of a classical Pan with the Santa Fe Flute Immersion, showcasing young performers from a week-long class performing works from Bach to Piazzola.

The free concert will be 5:30 p.m. Sunday at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel, 50 Mt. Carmel Road.
