Featuring: Julio Bravo y su Orquesta Salsabor

Julio Bravo y su Orquesta Salsabor has been bringing hard hitting salsa to Bay Area salseros for nearly 20 years. Hailing from Peru, lead singer and band leader Julio Bravo brings together a talented group of musicians to create his own unique blend of energetic danceable salsa that has made them one of the Bay Area’s top salsa bands.



Chavalos promotes the culture, art, music and traditions of Nicaragua. They do this by producing cultural events from poetry nights, cultural nights and concerts. They bring artists from dancers to musicians from Nicaragua to perform for the community in the Bay Area. The funds raised at their events are used to help children in Nicaragua. They take clothes, school supplies, toys and food to kids in poverty. And that is where their name comes from, Kids from here helping Kids from there. Chavalos de Aqui y Alla. And the dance group reflects that as well, Dance for Nicaragua, Chavalos Danzas por Nicaragua.

Mariachi Nueva Generacion

As the premier San Francisco Mariachi band, Mariachi Nueva Generacion consists of studied, professional musicians combining over 35 years of history and music experience to bring the essence of traditional Mariachi direct to your heart.

In 2002 Salvador “Chava” Garcia formed and directed the group along with Higinio Espinoza. As the elder, more experienced members, they brought a storied history and experience from bands in both Mexico and California. They have performed in many states around the US and Mexico. In addition, the group also has several extremely talented younger members bringing classical training and youthful experience to the fold.

Sukay Band

Sukay, an international touring musical group, is known in the United States, more than any other group, for bringing the music of the Andes for the first time to thousands of cities and concert stages throughout North America. The group’s name came from the ancient language and culture of the Quechua of the central Andes, and it means “to open the earth and make it ready for planting”. Sukay was formed by Edmond Badoux from Switzerland and Quentin Howard in Montreal, Quebec in 1975. They traveled to South America for 15 months where they studied Andean music in many small villages in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Eddy & Quentin Navia founded the Peña Pachamama in San Francisco, CA, which for the past 20 years has become the gathering place for the great world music and dance.
