Barrio Manouche
Barrio Manouche is an addictive wild ride of Gypsy Jazz, Latin, Rock, Big Band with flamenco dance and their sound is massive!

The San Francisco-based acoustic ensemble performs a repertoire of original compositions with an emotionally
charged sound that is difficult to classify yet instantly recognizable. The group’s international roots shine brightly in
their music with members from Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California and is deeply influenced by a wide range of
musical traditions.

Barrio Manouche has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and its passion
for musical improvisations.

With latest collaborations including French Flamenco dancer Fanny Ara, African sacred dance Brazilian dancer Emaye
Ama Mizani, as well as Colombian singer Iván Rondón, Barrio Manouche plays what is perhaps the truest definition of
World Music.

Barrio Manouche is taking their audience on a magical journey, with a unique fusion of cultures and musical
backgrounds, an auditory and visual feast like no other.
Seffarine - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Seffarine's international blend of sounds features soulful Moroccan singer Lamiae Naki and flamenco guitarist Nat Hulskamp. Their music embraces and extends Naki's rich heritage, which spans from Moorish Spain to the Sahara, by mixing Arabic Andalusi music with Hulskamp's dynamic flamenco guitar, the grooves of acclaimed bassist Bernardo Gomez and versatile percussionist Fiaindratovo Manavihare, and the exotic instrumentation of Persian master multi-instrumentalist Bobak Salehi. These diverse backgrounds meld into an intoxicating blend of ancient and modern that Bass Player Magazine describes as a “gorgeous intersection of Spanish flamenco, Arabic and Andalusian music, Persian classical, and jazz”.

Seffarine takes its name from the ancient metalworking square in Lamiae's home city of Fes, Morocco. Her family is well known in the Seffarine as master metalworkers continuing the tradition today. The square dates back to the 9th century and is famous for the complex rhythms that can be heard from the blacksmiths' hammers.
