Wednesday nights ring out this summer in University City as the Penn Museum presents its third annual P.M. @ Penn Museum Summer Nights music series. This year's series kicks off on June 20 with Barakka, a Philadelphia-based, multi-ethnic group specializing in Turkish folk-rock with a mix of eastern and western instrumentation including guitar, oud, drums, bass, darbuka, and keyboards.

Preview Barakka's cultural influences and music here:

This year's summer lineup features musical styles ranging from Middle Eastern folk/rock to Brazilian Bossa Nova and lively Creole Zydeco to funk fusion. Drinks and light fare will be provided by the Pepper Mill Café’s garden bar, and guests can purchase combination tickets to explore Penn Museum’s many galleries.

Museum galleries, including the special exhibition MAYA 2012: Lords of Time, are open until 8:00 pm. General admission is $5 (and includes Museum entry fee). For just a $10.50 upgrade, adults and children alike can enjoy the concert and tour MAYA 2012 for only $15.50 per person, a savings of up to $7.00 per adult. General admission is free for PENNcard holders and Museum members.

Concerts move inside in the event of rain.
