special CO-BILL event...
LA GENTE SF, led by singer-songwriter Rafael Bustamante Sarria, was born in the eclectic San Francisco Bay Area. The group has created their own unique blend of World Music, Cumbia, Reggae, Salsa, Hip-Hop and Reggaeton. Their music and live shows fuses together rhythms, dances and cultural influences from all over Latino America and the Caribbean with a distinct San Francisco flavor to create an infectious, high energy dance party. After years of touring and releasing new music, LA GENTE SF has built a large and loyal following all over the US and around the globe. LA GENTE SF was founded in 2007, since then they have performed numerous festivals, universities, radio stations, museums, art galleries and major venues all over the US and the world. For example: Los Angeles, New Orleans, Austin, Portland and New York as well as Spain, Italy, France, Mexico, Great Britain, Brazil, Chile, Nicaragua, and Colombia. The group is currently at work on their 5th studio album entitled: "Entre 2 Mundos" and prior to lockdown we had just returned from tours in Mexico and Spain. The group is gearing up to release this brand new music along with a series of music videos filmed in Colombia during their recent musical residency in Cartagena. LA GENTE SF can't wait to hit the road again and bring there unique voice and energy to the people all over the world. Their notoriety and showmanship had found them sharing the stage with other recognized recording artists such as George Clinton and The P-Funk All Stars, E-40, La Santa Cecilia, Quantic, The Digital Underground, Oscar De Leon, Hyro-Glyphics, Digable Planets, Pato Banton, Lyrics Born, Pete Escovedo, and MALO.
For the past 11 years, Oakland-based LoCura has crafted their own unique musical identity: "Califas Mestizo Music," a blend of Latin American and Iberian rhythms such as rumba, cumbia, salsa and flamenco influenced by punk rock, ska, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall with local and global lyrical themes. The band's name ("it cures it") reflects their ethos of making music a remedy, a theme which permeates lyrics such as "la cultura cura la locura (culture cures the madness).” With three powerhouse women at the helm, their live shows are a soul-stirring punk-edged party mixing cajon-driven rhythms with mutilingual lyrics that reflect the unique intersection of cultures in the Bay Area. Ana Tijoux meets Manu Chao with a touch of Lhasa. Spanish-American vocalist Kata Miletich, expanding on the group's influences, notes "one big inspiration for the ways we consciously and unconsciously connect different music is this idea that styles and rhythms travel from Africa, Europe stretching across the Americas and mixing with indigenous sounds. Culture is alive in so many different ways, and shows up in different places to tell a story." LoCura has toured the U.S, Canada, Nicaragua, Mexico and Spain playing music festivals and sharing the stage with artists such as Bombino, La Cuneta Son Machin, Ziggy Marley, Beats Antique, Quetzal, and Nortec Collective. In the California Bay Area they have opened for Sergio Mendes, La Santa Cecilia, The Seshen & Bomba Estereo and have sold out The Great American Music Hall and The Independent in San Francisco. LoCura has released three full length albums and is currently writing and recording music for their fourth album.
