Un Viaje – “A Journey” – is a mini-music festival on El Rio’s lovely patio to celebrate the release of Banda Sin Nombre’s live album, created on a tour spanning from Catalonia to the southern tip of Andalucia. Featuring live music from Banda Sin Nombre and La Mandanga, DJ sets from Chulita Vinyl Club, and special dance performances from Lea De Las Lobas, Shane Zaldivar, and the fabulous TransforMario all the way from Granada.
Banda Sin Nombre is a five-piece street band from the Mission District dedicated to performing folk music from around the world. Mixing rich vocal harmonies with acoustic instruments including guitar, fiddle, charango, cajon, and bass, the band’s inspirations range from Peruvian chicha to Catalan rumba and Appalachian old time to cumbia.
La Mandanga directly from Spain, and perfectly blended with the greatest musicians in the area they have reached a unique sound, offering you an original and danceable show, full of energy and good vibrations. Founded by Alberto Gutiérrez (vocals and guitar) & Javier Jiménez (lead guitar and vocals). Luis Jiménez (cajón), Joe Nemzer (bass), Vincent De Jesus (Congas) and Jacob Savage (trumpet) complete the group.
