B-Side Players
B-Side Players
The B*Side Players have been laying down their own inimitable Latin global funk since they came together in 1994. Their incendiary live shows made them local San Diego legends, while their albums showcased a band with a restless musical intelligence, effortlessly blending genres to fashion their own forward looking, latin flavored soul music. The Players are known for igniting dance floors with their uplifting positive message of love and unity through music, culture, and movement. A 10 man band of percussion, horns, keys and guitars, the players are a funkdafied feast for the senses, guaranteed to send you home with a satisfied warm feeling of music, culture and love.

LoCura
Direct from San Francisco’s fertile music scene, LoCura taps into the diverse sounds that have a rich history in the Bay Area, weaving them together in an uncanny way to reveal their common roots. Mixing Flamenco with Reggae and Cumbia with Ska through contagious rhythms and multiple languages, their music takes you on a ride through a day in the emerging globalized experience where the movement of people and ideas are in constant flux. Reflecting lead vocalist Kata’s own experience of growing up Spanish American in Spain, Italy, and the U.S., LoCura’s music rides the borders of identity and migration piecing together a mosaic of our myriad cultures and experiences. In Spain the expression "Ida y Vuelta" is used to describe certain styles within Flamenco that made a "round-trip" from Spain to Latin America, mixing with music from the African slave and Indigenous populations. With this idea of music traveling and music as creative resistance, LoCura takes the trip back again mixing it up with their own Califas Flamenkito, Reggae, and Cuban Son styles. Moved by the music that crosses borders and takes root in different lands, LoCura draws from this creative 'rebelde' spirit to cultivate the cures passed on from our ancestors.
