Encuentro del Canto Popular 37

Saturday, Dec. 1 • 8PM
Brava Theater Center Cabaret

FREE CONCERT!
Featuring:
Almas Fronterizas
John Santos
La Favi
DjLeydis DeCuba

The Mission community’s annual Encuetro del Canto Popular is returning for a 37th straight year!  For Encuentro 37 we’re doing something a little bit different: an intimate night at Brava Theater with psychedelic Indigenous soul rockers Almas Fronterizas and Bay Area Latin percussion legend John Santos.

The theme for this year, which is a direct response to the Trump administration’s hostility to immigrants and asylum seekers, is Open Borders: Peace For All Asylum Seekers. In that spirit we have partnered with Paseo Artístico, the Mission’s District’s free bimonthly community-focused art stroll, to bring you a world-class concert completely free of charge (the first ever free Encuetro).

For more information you can visit Paseo Artistico’s website or see the Encuentro 37 Facebook page.
