LoCura

"There's no denying the power of the nine-piece ensemble's ebullient new "Semilla Caminante" ("Traveling Seeds"). Rooted in flamenco music, the album's 11 tracks fuse elements of punk, funk, reggae and Cuban son to create a sound that's as urgent — and exhilarating — as the politics of resistance they embrace." - WASHINGTON POST

"The seven-piece band crashes through stylistic barricades with a kinetic blend of ska, son, funk and nueva canción. It's party music for the revolution (or a musical uprising looking for a party)." – The San Francisco Chronicle

"San Francisco's LoCura- stylistic globetrotters who blend elements of rock and funk with hefty doses of Latin rhythms and sounds from even further afield." - National Geographic

CALIFAS MESTIZO MUSIC: 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.

"LoCura is an explosion of sonic sunshine with crisp percussion and guitar work, driving bass lines, soaring brass, and dynamic sass from lead singer Kata Miletich"
- Rupa Marya from Rupa and the April Fishes

"The bass player, the rhythm section, because of the production, to me that makes all the musicianship stand out…. To me it signals something different. It's not strictly Flamenco, it's not strictly pop, and there's a little bit of a reggae feel to it." - Jesus Conteras from NPR's ALT Latino

"The seven-piece band crashes through stylistic barricades with a kinetic blend of ska, son, funk and nueva canción. It's party music for the revolution (or a musical uprising looking for a party)." – The San Francisco Chronicle

"LoCura is one of the hottest groups emerging out of the Bay Area music scene." - SF Guardian
