Locarno Band and Tonye Aganaba - The Night Market at Music in the Park

August 8 5:00 to 8:30 pm

The Locarno Band, with Special Guest Tonye Aganaba, will be turning up the heat from 5 to 8:30 pm at The Night Market on August 8 at Gyro Park in Trail.

Vancouver based Locarno is the Latin project of Tom Landa, the frontman of Juno-award-winning The Paperboys. With members from world music supergroup BC World Collective (playing Kaslo Jazz Fest this year), Locarno’s music, like Tom, is part Mexican with strong doses of Cuban Son, folk, pop, funk and salsa, all with a modern edge. The music has hints of Manu Chao, Ozomatli or Rodrigo and Gabriela but is a truly original new flavour in Latin music.

Landa explains that Locarno is a fusion band, blending contemporary with traditional elements. “It’s danceable, it’s fun and it’s Latin music, without being a straight-up Salsa or Meringue band.”

The band’s energetic live shows shine with Tom Landa on jaranas and guitars, Kalissa Landa on violin, Robin Layne on marimba, congas and timbales, Pedro Mota on guitar and vocals, Aaron McKinney on bass, Liam MacDonald on drums, congas and pandero, Mark D’Angelo on trumpetand Nick La Riviere on trombone.

Joining Locarno is Tonye Aganaba, a multidisciplinary artist, musician, and singer. Tonye’s style is fluid and best described as a mix of Soul, Neo-Folk and R&B, with comparisons to Lauryn Hill, Ani DiFranco and Chaka Khan.

The first Night Market Fundraiser was an excellent turnout, and we are excited for Locarno’s high energy mix of Mexican Folk, Columbian Son and African rhythms. Organized by Trail & District Arts Council in partnership with Trail’s incrEDIBLE Farmer’s Market, the Night Market is a fun evening of food, vendors, live music, and beer garden, all in the beautiful setting of Gyro Park. Whether you want to picnic, shop, or dance, there’s something for everyone. So, come down, support the arts and feel the buzz again at this fabulous outdoor summer event.
