Sunday, July 27 at 2:00 p.m.
Stern Grove, 19th Avenue and Sloat Boulevard, San Francisco

Celebrate the sound of San Francisco with Voices of Latin Rock!

Born in the Mission District, Latin Rock was a defining sound of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s when bands like Santana, Malo, Sapo, Abel and the Prophets, and Azteca melded the rhythms of Latin music with funk, soul, and rock. Voices of Latin Rock features veteran performers like Jorge Santana and Gabriel Manzo of Malo, Abel Sanchez of Abel and the Prophets, and trumpeter Bill Ortiz from Santana, among others, who shaped the sound of what became known in America as "Latin Rock." With an impeccably tight horn section, blistering guitars, and a host of percussionists, expect Voices of Latin Rock to lay down a sorching performance.






Local favorite SambaDá (http://www.sambada.com/)will lead the afternoon with a high-powered concoction of Brazilian beats, samba, funk, reggae, and hip-hop.

A mix of samba, capoeira music, funk, reggae and hip hop, the album is the product of their collaboration with 3 time Grammy-nominated producer Greg Landau, who has worked with artists including Susana Baca, Patato Valdes, Maldita Vecindad and Buena Vista Social Club's Juan de Marcos Gonzalez. This new CD features vocalist, percussionist & dancer Dandha da Hora, a native of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil and a long-time member and performer with Il Aiy. Salve a Bahia features original music by bandleader & capoeira mestre Papiba Godinho (also of Brazil) and a guest appearance by Ozomatli's Wil-Dog Abers. While Brazilin natives Papiba Godinho and Dandha da Hora bring their profound knowledge and respect for the roots of afro-brazilian song and dance, the entire band has developed a type of samba-reggae-funk with a universal appeal.
