Event Archive - Locarno

Sat. November 23rd 2013 7:30pm Vancouver FanClub (No Minors) 7:30pm
$10 at the door only.
Locarno is the Latin project of Juno award winning musician and Paperboys frontman, Tom Landa.
The music, like him, is part Mexican but with strong doses of Cuban Son, Folk Music, Pop and Funk. There are threads of Son Jarocho and Salsa but the songs are more edgy and contemporary than that. The music could be compared to Manu Chao, Ozomatli or Rodrigo and Gabriela but although there are similarities it is truly original and a new flavour in the Latin music genre.
