Los Van Van

Stern Grove Festival

Los Van Van heats up the Grove with its revolutionary "songo" sound, a uniquely Cuban concoction of rock, jazz, and son designed for one thing--dancing! Don't miss this legendary group when they return to Stern Grove Festival. Opening the show is Banda Sin Nombre, a local five-piece street band performing global folk music.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jesse Hamlin had to say about Los Van Van :

The great Cuban dance band Los Van Van—founded 50 years ago by the late bassist-singer Juan Formell and now led by his percussionist son Samuel—rocks the Grove with its blend of Cuban idioms, funk and salsa, mixing the strings of a traditional charanga band with electric guitar and keyboard.
