Production DetailsLos Nadies Groove in the Grove
Audiences will get a chance to put on their dancing shoes for a Eucalyptus Grove hootenanny with the Mission's favorite sons! Los Nadies weave together a wide array of Latin American rhythms with rock, creating a unique and sophisticated danceable fusion that includes Rumba Flamenca, Cumbia, Afro-Cuban, Peruvian & Brazilian music, Reggae and South American folklore with poetically and politically infused lyrics. Their music often mirrors and reflects the Latino experience in a globalized US, with immigrant roots hailing from Argentina, Bolivia, Perú, and the Bay Area. Los Nadies' work is greatly influenced by Nueva Trova Latinoamericana in the vein of Silvio Rodriguez, as well as Santana, Bunburi, Calamaro, Bersuit Vergarabat and Manu Chao, to name just a few.Los Nadies
Los Nadies, or The Nobodies, take their name from the eponymous poem/essay by Uruguayan historian Eduardo Galeano decrying the invisibility cast upon the millions of dispossessed people around the world. As a band Los Nadies are proudly committed to social justice as well as to environmental and political awareness. Yet they embrace a spirit of fun, joy and sheer musicianship in every performance.
