Rasquache Liberation Front

The RLF emerges from the eclectic musical backgrounds of front members that span from mariachi to Puerto Rican bomba, Tejano to Afro Cuban jazz, and from salsa to blues.

The RLF músicos have toiled for decades in Latino music scenes in NorCal and beyond—at salsa clubs and VFW halls, on mainstages and in lobbies—working with a who’s-who of internationally renown artists. Their live shows blend their deep repertoire of Latin genres from cumbia to son jarocho with original songs steeped in Mexican-Americana.

The World Harmony Chorus

The World Harmony Chorus is celebrating its 25th year as a community chorus, with branches in Palo Alto, Berkeley, and Santa Cruz.  Founded by Daniel Steinberg, the chorus performs songs in musical traditions from around the world.  This year’s repertoire includes songs from Argentina, Brazil, Iceland, Finland, Korea, Québec, Zimbabwe, and Galicia!

The chorus welcomes singers of all ages, and at all levels of ability and experience.  All parts are taught by ear, and musical transcriptions are provided. If you’ve never experienced the magic of singing in a choir, or if you’ve always thought of yourself as someone who “just can’t sing”, this is a great place to start.
