Locura

Many musical styles have washed up on the shores of the Bay Area, and LoCura – the band you’re hearing now – has scooped up several of them, swirled them together, and created their own sound from these diverse ingredients.

LoCura will be performing at Stern Grove on Sunday, August 17th, opening for Sergio Mendez. The Stern Grove Festival has been presenting “concerts free to the public and for everyone’s enjoyment” for 77 years.

San Francisco-based band, LoCura, bring their Califas-Mestizo beats to their 3rd album, "Dale de Comer". They will celebrate their CD release show on February 8th at the Independent in San Francisco. Music starts about 9:00pm.

The San Francisco band LoCura reflects the Bay's diverse mix of cultures, histories and people through music that surfs genres and shuns labels. Members of the band come from as far away as Spain, and as close as the Mission district. They blend flamenco, Cuban son, reggae, cumbia, ska and more to make their own border-crossing brand of revolutionary party music. With the release of their new album, Semilla Caminante, the band deepens this mixture of musical and political cultures.
