Route97 Culture and Covert Farms Family Estate present: Locarno at the Covert Farms Band Shell and Log Barn. Gates open at 6:00pm Music 7:30-9:30
Locarno is well known to BC Interior audiences having wowed audiences at numerous BC & Canadian festivals and performing multiple times at the Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna.. Take advantage of a rare opportunity to catch Locarno perform on September 19 one of the Okanagan’s most spectacular locations – Covert Farms Family Estate.
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. Tom has always dabbled in Latin music, and decided to immerse himself more into genre hence Locarno was born.
Locarno has honed in on their sound incorporating their influences with music from Columbia, African Sukous, Mexican Marimba Music, Venezuelan Joropo and Brazilian Forro Music.
Perhaps where the band shines the most is in the live shows which features Tom Landa on jaranas and guitars, Kalissa Landa on violin, Robin Layne on marimba, congas and timbales, Pedro Mota on guitar an vocals, Aaron McKinney on bass, Liam MacDonald on drums, congas and pandero, Mark D’Angelo on trumpet and Nick La Rivere on trombone.
Press love for Locarno:
“Locarno’s approach is so genuine and so welcome for audiences who enjoy great song writing, a respect for tradition, a searching musical curiosity, and virtuoso performance skills. Their compelling blend of Mexican, Cuban and North American popular music delivered with exuberant energy is a winning combination.”
“Don’t miss the chance to see this band. You’ll find yourself singing their praises too”
CBC producer – Michael Juk
