The legendary 1970's Latin rock band that made its glorious return to the stage at the 2013 Voices of Latin Rock were the hit of the show. Dakila lives on and you can't miss this Latin Groove band that took the city and their fans to a new high. When we think about Latin Rock, we usually imagine Hispanic or South American artists. However, San Francisco is a diverse city that it is not surprising to find a group that performs music other than their own. For the group Dakila, mixing the latin beat with Filipino flair worked well for them.
with Special Guest Raul Rekow, longtime Santana, Malo and Sapo conguero
Raul Rekow has played congas with Carlos Santana since 1976, participating in the groundbreaking melding of Latin, rock and funk styles that characterizes the band's history. For over thirty years Rekow has added his pulsating and colorful rhythms to the Santana sound that has captivated audiences on five continents.
Initially self-taught, Rekow learned about Cuban percussion from fellow Santana veterans Armando Peraza and Orestes Vilato. He passes on that knowledge at LP sponsored clinics along with fellow Santana musician and LP artist Karl Perazzo. The duo feeds off of each other's energy and talent, resulting in a kinetic performance whether live in a clinic or on their best-selling instructional video From Afro-Cuban to Rock. Their presentations have become immensely popular because of the combination of top-notch expertise and an easygoing sense of humor.
LUMBRE is a Latin Rock Band primarily hailing from San Jose CA and is now taking flight with the ambition of ascending into the music scene all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Lumbre is led by guitarist/songwriter Robert Banda, who has crafted his music into a fusion of rock and blues that's infused with congas and percussion of an Afro/Cuban flavor. Lumbre's goal is to continue carrying the flag to new heights, by introducing fans of the genre to Lumbre's fiery and colorful originals. Lumbre is confident that you will enjoy our songs as a truly genuine representation of Latin Rock's birthplace. Open your mind, heart and spirit and let it be filled with a new version/presentation of the Bay Area's Latin Rock that was born in the 60's & 70's.
