Cascada de Flores on Thursday, Oct 6 at 8pm

The core members of Cascada de Flores have been re-imagining Mexican tradition for years. Inspired by the fact that even as deep as its diversity goes, Mexico has a continuous love affair with foreign cultural phenomenon and incorporates them as if they were its own, the ensemble spends 14 years swimming in a magical place somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean sea where rancheras, boleros, sones and guarachas from México, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Colombia meet.

$15-20 suggested donation; no one turned away for lack of funds.

 

MaKrú on Friday, Oct 7 at 8pm

Landing in San Francisco from different parts of the world, Makrú fuses Rumba Flamenca, Reggae, Cuban Son, Cumbia, Ska, and other global beats to create a unifying, positive vibe in the Bay Area through its music.  Lyrics in Spanish and English bring reality, fiction, hope and joy together, in hopes of spreading a message of respect and love.

Free performance.

 

Corazón Salvaje on Saturday, Oct 8 at 8pm

Corazón Salvaje serves up a sound brewed with the thunder of Afro-Latin rhythms, a pinch of poetry, and the drive of accordion and guitar.

​$15-20 suggested donation; no one turned away for lack of funds.
