CBC Radio 2 is pleased to present "Locarno Celebrates Saints and Souls". You can be a part of this FREE concert featuring the newly formed, Vancouver-based band, Locarno, as they recognize the important Mexican cultural heritage of El Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead). This colourful celebration will be animated by one of the most exciting new groups on the world music scene. 

Juno-award winning musician and band leader Tom Landa (of Los Paperboys) is excited about his new band. "I definitely wanted to make a record to pay tribute to my Mexican roots, and with Locarno I'm able to do that with a group of amazing musicians. We blend Mexican and Cuban songs, funky Latin stuff, hip hop, and folk into a sound that is fresh sounding while still being faithful to those Mexican roots."

Among the performers in Locarno is trumpeter Miguelito Valdes who has toured with the Buena Vista Social Club and bassist Darren Parris who has recording credits with Hedley, Frazey Ford, and Steve Dawson. It's clear Tom Landa and Locarno will have a winning show to share with their Vancouver fans. 

This is a FREE show but you must reserve seats to attend. Send an email to Rsvp.radio@cbc.ca with the number of tickets you'd like and put "Locarno" in the subject line.
