Cecilia Pena-Govea and members of her band Taraf de Locos present a program showcasing repertoire from five different continents. “Taraf de Locos derives cultural relevance and power from the established Balkan and Latin music traditions of San Francisco’s Mission District and the larger Bay Area. Formed in 2014, Taraf came together through the intersection of diverse musical backgrounds, shared Mission community, and a love of Greek, Albanian, Turkish, New Orleans, Mexican, and Cuban music. The band has since recruited bassist Mireya Leon, released a debut album, and toured the U.S.”
This concert is offered free as part of CMC’s Shenson Concert Series.
