Banda Sin Nombre feat. The Genie & Shane Saldivar
La Diáspora Festival presents a benefit show with Banda Sin Nombre and The Genie SF, in the newly reopened Amado's music venue (the old Viracocha space). Come support the project and celebrate with us!
La Diáspora Festival is an International Cultural Festival bringing 20 artists from San Francisco to Puebla, Mexico in November of 2019. In a time when borders divide families and communities, we are creating cultural bridges between these neighboring societies, through the art of immigrants who are devoted to the art and culture of South and Central America.
Banda Sin Nombre is a five-piece street band from San Francisco's 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- from Appalachian old-time to cumbia. Featuring Shane ZalDiva, San Francisco's beloved "Pop-Up Drag Queen" and transgender rights activist.
The Genie is an avant-garde guitarist, live-looping innovator, and performer from San Francisco. Grooving beats, hypnotic harmonies, and ethereal electronics send listeners to another world.
