-LA GENTE SF PRESS QUOTES-
“La Gente SF, led by Rafael Bustamante Sarria, plays an intoxicating cocktail of world music, mixing cumbia, reggae, salsa and hip-hop. Dance music with a political edge”
-Cy Musiker, KQED Arts
“La Gente SF reminded listeners of the depth, scope, and considerable talent of the local music scene. The band can be described, generically, as Latin fusion, aka mestiza music. Yet that description doesn’t really impart the sonic goodness and vibey aesthetic the band embodies.”
-Eric K Arnold, Oakland Local
“It’s refreshing to watch a band draw an audience as eclectic as their music. It seemed no one could sit still through the contagious beat and positive vibe.”
-Cassandra Braun, East Bay Times
-ODDJOB ENSEMBLE BIO-
"Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, Oddjob Ensemble performs a myriad of musical styles and collaborates with perfomance artists in Vaudevillian shows, musical theater, and the avant-garde. The Ensemble, led by Kalei Yamanoha, is a quartet that is comprised of trap kit, trumpet, string bass and accordion. Dancing to energizing early jazz numbers, listening to ethereal folk music and stomping to raucous overtures, the crowd will have their ears twisted into a delicious musical pretzel."
