LoCura
LoCura
For the past 11 years, Oakland-based LoCura has crafted their own distinct musical identity: "Califas Canto," a remix of rhythms and vocal expressions from Spain to California.

Reflecting lead vocalist Kata's own experience of growing up Spanish-American in Spain, Italy and California, LoCura's music rides the borders of identity and migration piecing together a mosaic of our myriad cultures and experiences. Fronted by 3 powerhouse women they weave a tapestry of multi-lingual and thought provoking lyrics evoking the cultural kaleidoscope of their hometown Oakland. With the Cajón drum as the pulse LoCura combines Rumba Flamenca, Reggae, Son and Cumbia together with lyrical poetry to reflect the unique intersection of cultures in the Bay Area. Their themes range from border issues, immigrants rights to urban life and making another world possible. Ana Tijoux meets Manu Chao with a touch of Lhasa.

LoCura has toured the U.S., Canada, Nicaragua, Mexico and Spain playing music festivals and sharing the stage with artists such as Bombino, Quetzal, La Cuneta Son Machin, Ziggy Marley, Beats Antique, and Nortec Collective. In the Bay Area they have opened for Sergio Mendes, La Santa Cecilia, Bomba Estereo, and The Seshen 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.
