Barrio Manouche
Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-Based international colective (Spain, Quebec, France, Mexico, Brasil, Colombia and California), playing music that will take you on a magical journey, frequently joined by artist from all over the globe.

The ensemble has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and their passion for their musical improvisation.
The band performs a repertoire of original, mostly instrumental compositions with a unique sound that it’s difficult to classify but instantly recognizable, deeply influenced by a range of musical traditions, from the swing of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, to the Hot Jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, the Gypsy soul of Eastern Europe, the Nuevo Flamenco of Paco de Lucía and Camarón de la Isla to the Avant-Garde sounds of Miles Davis, Ornate Coleman and John Coltrane.

For the past 11 years, Oakland-based LoCura has crafted their own unique musical identity: «Califas Mestizo Music,» a blend of Latin American and Iberian rhythms such as rumba, cumbia, salsa and flamenco influenced by punk rock, ska, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall with local and global lyrical themes. The band's name («it cures it») reflects their ethos of making music a remedy, a theme which permeates lyrics such as «la cultura cura la locura (culture cures the madness).”

With three powerhouse women at the helm, their live shows are a soul-stirring punk-edged party mixing cajon-driven rhythms with mutilingual lyrics that reflect the unique intersection of cultures in the Bay Area. Ana Tijoux meets Manu Chao with a touch of Lhasa.

Spanish-American vocalist Kata Miletich, expanding on the group's influences, notes „one big inspiration for the ways we consciously and unconsciously connect different music is this idea that styles and rhythms travel from Africa, Europe stretching across the Americas and mixing with indigenous sounds. Culture is alive in so many different ways, and shows up in different places to tell a story.“

LoCura has toured the U.S, Canada, Nicaragua, Mexico and Spain playing music festivals and sharing the stage with artists such as Bombino, La Cuneta Son Machin, Ziggy Marley, Beats Antique, Quetzal, and Nortec Collective. In the California Bay Area they have opened for Sergio Mendes, La Santa Cecilia, The Seshen & Bomba Estereo and have sold out The Great American Music Hall and The Independent in San Francisco. LoCura has released three full length albums and is currently writing and recording music for their fourth album.
