Heartwood is a pending nonprofit 501 (c)(3). The concert will benefit upcoming programs in the healing arts, permaculture and sustainable living at Heartwood Institute, where everyday life is the platform for spiritual and educational growth.
The event will feature LoCura with special guest Sol Horizon and DJ Izzy Wise. An organic Mexican dinner by the Harris Learning Center, a local nonprofit, will be available.
Direct from San Francisco’s fertile music scene, LoCura taps into the diverse sounds that have a rich history in the Bay Area, weaving them together in an uncanny way to reveal their common roots. Mixing flamenco with reggae and cumbia with ska through contagious rhythms and multiple languages, their music takes you on a ride through a day in the emerging globalized experience where the movement of people and ideas are in constant flux.
Reflecting lead vocalist Kata’s own experience of growing up Spanish American in Spain, Italy, and the U.S., LoCura’s music rides the borders of identity and migration piecing together a mosaic of myriad cultures and experiences.
Moved by the music that crosses borders and takes root in different lands, LoCura draws from the creative ‘rebelde’ spirit to cultivate the cures passed on from the ancestors.
For over 10 years, Northern California based Sol Horizon has delivered a unique style of high vibes reggae music. Driven by the raw energy of front man Michael Litwin and anchored by a stellar rhythm section featuring former members of Groundation and Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade, Sol Horizon serves up a powerful auditory experience that blends roots reggae with elements of progressive rock and electronic dance music. With lyrics that touch on themes of peace, community, sustainability and the re-vitalizing power of nature, the band moves feet and inspires minds, creating a positive musical experience that continues to attract fans from across the globe.
