Diego’s Umbrella Free Concert
San Francisco’s ambassadors of gypsy rock, Diego’s Umbrella captures California’s cultural multiplicity with enthusiasm, humor and decadence.
These urban, gringo mariachis have performed more than 1,000 live shows, cloaked in elaborate homemade outfits. The band’s unforgettable performance has visually and aurally captivated diverse audiences around the globe. Influenced heavily by flamenco, klezmer, and Latin music, Diego’s Umbrella has introduced the world to a new kind of popular music: Gypsy Rock, with sounds reminiscent to that of Gogol Bordello, Devotchka and Muse.
