Arts and culture in brief: the week ahead in Costa Rica
Metallica is back: the legendary thrash metal band returns to Costa Rica for a second visit to rock the National Stadium on Saturday. New music may be on the menu, as the band is just days away from releasing its new album, “Hardwired… to Self-Destruct” (Saturday, November 5).
Sound therapist Daniel Lara, head of Mexico’s Sound Medicine Network, will offer a workshop on meditation and Tibetan singing bowls in Pavas, in western San José, with a closing concert on Sunday, November 6 at 6 p.m. at Mezanine Studio in Santa Ana.
