Mexican roots and blues explodes from this Vancouver-based band builds outward from its Afro-Cuban roots. The CBC says, “Great songwriting, a searching musical curiosity, and virtuoso performance skills.”
Locarno is the Latin project of JUNO Award winning musician, Tom Landa. Like him, the music is equal parts Mexican and Canadian. Tom was born and raised in Mexico City, and moved to Canada in his teens. In the mid nineties he formed the Folk Roots band, The Paperboys, who have been touring world-wide for over 20 years.
Locarno’s second CD, ‘Luz Y Sombra,’ was nominated for a Western Canada Music Award in the spring of 2016.
As the CBC’s Michael Juk says, “Don’t miss the chance to see this band. You’ll find yourself singing their praises too.”
