Barrio Manouche
Barrio Manouche
San Francisco-based acoustic ensemble performs a repertoire of original compositions with an emotionally charged sound that is difficult to classify yet instantly recognizable. The group’s international roots shine brightly in their music with members from Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California and deeply influenced by a range of musical
traditions.

Barrio Manouche has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and their passion for their musical improvisations. With latest collaborations including French Flamenco dancer Fanny Ara, African sacred dance by Brazilian dancer Emaye Ama Mizani, as well as Colombian singer Iván Rondón, Barrio Manouche plays what is perhaps the truest definition of World Music.
Barrio Manouche is taking their audience on a magical journey, with a unique fusion of cultures and musical backgrounds, an auditory and visual feast like no others.

“Barrio Manouche makes magical acoustic music mashed together from all corners of the globe — a new form of Americana, if you will, where flamenco guitar drifts above
Brazilian beats, clashing with Gypsy-jazz melodies. It could very well qualify as Americana in another decade or two. Or maybe its rich, gorgeous blend of acoustic Latin-French jazz will always remain distinctly Barrio Manouche.”
— Aaron Carnes
Makrú
Makrú
Landing in San Francisco from different parts of the world, various characters got together for different motives and goals at the end of 2008 and became Makrú, a musical tool to express their points of view, ideals and support the causes they believe in, chasing equality and unifying people along the way while doing what they love.

With an acoustic flavor that fusion Rumba Flamenca, Ska, Reggae, Cumbia, and other global beats, lyrics in Spanish and English that bring reality, fiction, hope and joy Makrú sounds like smashing the earth and playing it on a record player.

Makrú has played:
The Great American Music Hall, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Elbo Room, The New Parish, among many other venues in the Bay Area, as well as Los Angeles, San Diego, Oregon, Mexico, Spain, and Perú.

Makrú has been part of benefits for affected workers of Chevron, Workers Rights, Cesar Chavez Day, Elimination of Violence towards Women and Girls, Interamerican Association for Environmental Defense (AIDA), Moms Against Poverty and other events fighting sexual and racial discrimination.
