This picture of Claudia Gonzalez was taken at the 1st and Central Summer Concerts 2007 event outside of the Japanese American National Museum on July 26, 2007 at 6:30pm. CAVA preceded San Jose Taiko, the featured group that night.

CAVA is a latin music group comprised of Claudia Gonzalez on vocals, cajon, juarana and taiko, Walter Miranda on piano, electric keyboard and bass, Alfredo Ortiz on drums and timbales and Taiko Master Maceo on taiko. CAVA's Latin powered Jazz, mixed with influences of Peruvian soul, Cumbia, Salsa, Afro-Cuban music and Ska, captivated the audience that night.
