ÌFÉ
"ÌFÉ, direct from Puerto Rico, is an amazing new group that is the epitome of deep roots in contemporary context. Their captivating repertoire consists of sacred and secular traditional Afro-Cuban and Afro-Caribbean rhythms and songs interpreted with traditional and electronic instruments and sounds. Super unique and funky, this critically acclaimed ensemble headed by San Juan based African American Otura Mun, himself a Babalawo or high priest in the Yoruba religion, has captured the imagination and ears of the international community since releasing its first two singles, 3 Mujeres (Iború Iboya Ibosheshé) and House of Love (Ogbe Yekun). Following successful European and North American tours, ÌFÉ brings to the Freight a crew of Puerto Rico's most highly respected percussionists including Beto Torrens and Rafael Maya. This will be their Bay Area debut." - John Santos
Raices
Contemporary (Latino) American Music
Curated by John Santos


A concert series of diverse Latino (American) music representing hemispheric creativity in a wide range of formats interpreted by several of the most dynamic interpreters in the field. The term America in its true sense refers to North, South and Central America as well as the Caribbean islands. Accordingly, Latin American music defies brief descriptions. Folk syles and rhythms in traditional and evolutionary settings, dance music and jazz play seminal roles in this series.

Unleash your romantic side with Miramar - a wonderful group and timely musical/emotional concept celebrating life, love and beauty. The antidote to today's constant violence. I am stoked to hear them here in the Bay Area for the first time as part of my ongoing Roots series at the Freight! Please do yourself a favor and be bathed in their sweet sounds and thanks for spreading the word.
