Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2017 | SF

Between May and October in 2017, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents over 75 free performances on three outdoor stages in Yerba Buena Gardens.

Admission is free and entertainment includes music, theater, dance, cultural events, educational and children’s programs.

Led by Peruvian-born vocalist and percussion master Braulio Barrera, who earned a Grammy Award for his work with the Pacific Mambo Orchestra, Somos el Son is a relatively new addition to the Bay Area Latin music scene.

Launched four years ago, the potent 10-piece combo plays a dance-inducing repertoire of classic salsa and finely wrought originals. A well traveled and highly versatile musician who played cajón on Gustavo Santaolalla’s soundtrack for the 2004 film The Motorcycle Diaries, Barrera has attracted a world-class cast of players, including trumpeter and Pacific Mambo Orchestra co-founder Steffen Kuehn.
