Daniel Riera – Future Flutist with Electric Ensemble: Yerba Buena Gardens Festival | SF

Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm | Cost: FREE
Yerba Buena Gardens (Esplanade) | 773 Mission St., San Francisco, CA


Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2018 | SF

Between May and October in 2018, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents 100 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.

As the sonic architect of the Mission District’s prodigious, politically-charged Latin music collective Soltron, Daniel Riera often plays amidst a surging tide of percussion and brass. But for this concert the San Francisco native presents a set of new music in a stripped-down setting showcasing his compositional vision and multi-instrumental chops. Performing on flute, vocals, wind controller, and modular synthesizer, he’s designed a singular blend of jazz improvisation laced with hip hop, funk and Latin grooves. Powered by Oakland drummer Darian Gray, who can often be found touring with organ great Booker T. Jones, Riera’s quintet includes keyboardist and Lauryn Hill’s former music director Kev Choice, bassist Mike Shiono, former music director for Jennifer Holliday, and rising guitarist Andrew Levin.
