More About LoCura

Three years after the making of their debut album "Animas" with producer and recording engineer Dave Lopez who has worked with artists from Ice Cube to Lady Gaga, LoCura presents the latest incarnation of their Bay Area sound with their new album Semilla Caminante (Travelling Seed). Recorded with producer Jon Evans also renowned Bass player for Tori Amos and the project was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign.

With a cast of San Francisco's most diverse musicians, LoCura mixes Latin styles like Rumba Flamenca, Cuban rhythms, Cumbia, and Ska together in a brand they've dubbed 'Califas Flamenkito'. Fronted by Spanish-American vocalist Kata Miletich, LoCura reflects the global mosaic of its home in San Francisco through their distinctive style and brings their experiences to life in their sophomore album Semilla Caminante. With lyrics in Spanish, English and Spanglish, themes range from border issues, immigrants rights to urban life and making another world possible.

Marked by Kata's raw and infectious voice, the band's growth from a trio composed of Flamenco Guitar, Cajon (box drum), and vocals to a now seven-piece band has only allowed for their sound to become more intimate and evocative in their unique combination of Funk and Salsa Drum set and Trumpet, Cuban Percussion, Afro-Beat Bass, and at times a Flamenco dancer, keeping the spirit alive among the tradition of genre bending bands like Ojos de Brujo, Ozomatli, and Lila Downs.

LoCura has toured the U.S, Canada, Mexico and Spain playing music festivals and sharing the stage with renowned artists such as Ziggy Marley, Beats Antique, Les Nubiens, and Zap Mama and in their home town they have sold out venues like The Great American Music Hall and The Independent.
