LoCura, Namarodas Da Lua, Anaís Azul

  • LoCura

    LoCura

    Brazil

    For the past 11 years, Oakland-based LoCura has crafted their own unique musical identity: "Califas Mestizo Music," a blend of Latin American and Iberian rhythms such as rumba, cumbia, salsa and flamenco influenced by punk rock, ska, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall with local and global lyrical themes. The band's name ("it cures it") reflects their ethos of making music a remedy, a theme which permeates lyrics such as "la cultura cura la locura (culture cures the madness).” 

    With three powerhouse women at the helm, their live shows are a soul-stirring punk-edged party mixing cajon-driven rhythms with mutilingual lyrics that reflect the unique intersection of cultures in the Bay Area. Ana Tijoux meets Manu Chao with a touch of Lhasa. 

    Spanish-American vocalist Kata Miletich, expanding on the group's influences, notes "one big inspiration for the ways we consciously and unconsciously connect different music is this idea that styles and rhythms travel from Africa, Europe stretching across the Americas and mixing with indigenous sounds. Culture is alive in so many different ways, and shows up in different places to tell a story." 

    LoCura has toured the U.S, Canada, Nicaragua, Mexico and Spain playing music festivals and sharing the stage with artists such as Bombino, La Cuneta Son Machin, Ziggy Marley, Beats Antique, Quetzal, and Nortec Collective. In the California Bay Area they have opened for Sergio Mendes, La Santa Cecilia, The Seshen & Bomba Estereo and have sold out The Great American Music Hall and The Independent in San Francisco. LoCura has released three full length albums and is currently writing and recording music for their fourth album.

    Anaís Azul

    Latin America

    Peruvian first generation immigrant Anaís Azul (they/them/ella/elle) is a Boston and San Francisco (USA) based singer-songwriter, composer, and teaching artist. Formerly of diaspora pop band Cathartic Conundrum, Anaís currently tours and performs as a solo artist and with Petting Kazoo. Described as “stunningly honest and vulnerable,” their artistry engages with music as a tool for community building, cross-genre collaboration, and collective healing.

     

    Anaís writes music that is in conversation with jazz harmony, classical melodies, and Latin American singer-songwriter traditions. Their songs are bilingual (Spanish and English) and about mental health, queerness, facing harsh realities and finding inner peace in spite of chaos.

     

    Classically trained with an experimental spirit, Azul received their B.M in Music Composition and Theory from Boston University with a concentration in piano. Having composed and arranged for theatre and orchestra, Azul composed the music for the award-winning Displaced: A Response to Qurban produced by the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Their current projects include serving as lead composer for Dance Theatre Surreality in Lauren Hlubny’s 7 Gorges (New York, NY) and co-organizer of Weird Folk Fest (Boston, MA). Outside of their performance life, Anaís was in the first cohort of the CFA Fellows Program at Boston Medical Center and is currently a staff music teacher at Whole Tone Music Academy (Somerville, MA).


    Anaís Azul can be found online at anaisazul.com and on Instagram @anaisazul. Their past releases with Cathartic Conundrum are available for streaming on all major platforms and for purchase on Bandcamp.
