In celebration of a one-night reunion show at the Red Poppy, local band Taraf de Locos performs traditional folk and contemporary tunes rooted in the Balkans, Albania, Macedonia, Greece, Spain, Mexico, and Colombia. The evening will mark the group’s first performance together since the end of their last tour in 2015.
Taraf de Locos derives cultural relevance and power from the established Balkan and Latin music traditions of San Francisco’s Mission District and the larger Bay Area. Formed in 2014, Taraf came together through the intersection of diverse musical backgrounds, shared Mission community, and a love of Greek, Albanian, Turkish, New Orleans, Mexican, and Cuban music. The band has since recruited bassist Mireya Leon, released a debut album, and toured the U.S.
Admission: $10-20 sliding scale
