San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

Cascada de Flores

The sound of Cascada de Flores echoes the golden radio age of Latin America, where jazzy bolero and earthy traditions from the countryside were joyously juxtaposed. Their performances are reflections of the original radio variety programs, which exploded with thrilling diversity, from heart-wrenching bolero and raucous Cuban guaracha, to earthy Mexican son. You “learn the roots while listening to experts play music they clearly love. The result is rich, delicate, and lovely.” (Sing Out Magazine) Since its inception in 1999, the celebrated trio of artists has entertained while educating people of all ages and languages: from concert halls like the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, NM to community arts centers such as La Peña and the Freight and Salvage of Berkeley; from a 7:00 am concert/sing-along for day laborers at the Graton Labor Center to getting elderly latinos up to dance at the 30th Street Senior Center in San Francisco – the music they play resonates deeper than where differences lie.
