¡Viva Fiesta!

We take our backpack recorders to Old Spanish Fiesta Days in Santa Barbara, CA.  It’s a wonderful annual event celebrating Spanish dance and Mexican music, bringing together all cultures in a big street party.  We’ll also have coffee with the woman behind the Native techno of Lunar Drive, Sandy Hoover.  And we’ll unwrap a ton of new music from Brett Dennen, Caroline Rose, Jade Bird, Anthony David, Punch Brothers, Los Lobos, Bird Songs, Neko Case, Billy Gibbons, Elvis Costello, Florence+The Machine…and more. 

Music, food, friends — it’s UnderCurrents WEEKEND!

Co-Hosts Gregg McVicar & Gabriela Castelán meet young couples who have started little businesses that provide fun experiences:  Exotic tent "glamping" and vintage trailer photo booths.  Then in hour 2 we'll meet a band that is reviving and revising old music traditions, Jarabe Mexicano.  And Gabriela roasts some salmon and corn on the BBQ.  Music, food, friends, it's UnderCurrents WEEKEND!
