Sunday at 8:30 PM – 1 AM
18 Harlan Place, San Francisco, California 94108
Experience a killer sonic fusion with Makrú música from the Mission District, SF & La Chamba from Los Angeles.
Suggested donation $10
La Chamba is driven by Electric Guitar, that fuses 60’s psychedelic inspired surf-pop from Peru, with Afro-Latin rhythms.
With roots in East and South Central Los Angeles, “Chamba” literally means “work,” and is a word used throughout the barrios of Latin America to describe your hustle. Their sound pays homage to the melodies and grooves of Peruvian Chicha music popular among the working-classes of Lima and the Amazon. La Chamba encourages folks to let-loose and release their grind on the dance floor!
Landing in San Francisco from different parts of the world, various characters got together for different motives and goals at the end of 2008 and became Makrú, a musical tool to express their points of view, ideals and support the causes they believe in, chasing equality and unifying people along the way while doing what they love.
With an acoustic flavor that mixes Rumba Flamenca, Ska, Reggae, Cumbia and other global beats, lyrics in Spanish and English that bring reality, fiction, hope, and joy Makrú sounds like smashing the earth and playing it on a record player.
