Mixing Flamenco with Reggae and Cumbia with Ska through contagious rhythms and multiple languages, their music takes you on a ride through a day in the emerging globalized experience where the movement of people and ideas are in constant flux. Reflecting lead vocalist Kata’s own experience of growing up Spanish American in Spain, Italy, and the U.S., LoCura’s music rides the borders of identity and migration piecing together a mosaic of our myriad cultures and experiences. In Spain the expression "Ida y Vuelta" is used to describe certain styles within Flamenco that made a "round-trip" from Spain to Latin America, mixing with music from the African slave and Indigenous populations. With this idea of music traveling and music as creative resistance, LoCura takes the trip back again mixing it up with their own Califas Flamenkito, Reggae, and Cuban Son styles. Moved by the music that crosses borders and takes root in different lands, LoCura draws from this creative 'rebelde' spirit to cultivate the cures passed on from our ancestors.

    Aventurera Album Available on all Digital platforms and select stores! About Aventurera Album *10 tracks (+ 2 bonus tracks), in English, Spanish and French To be released on the spring 2016, this album symbolizes rebirth. It calls to the adventurer in each one of us to go beyond what we know, reach into the unknown, challenge ourselves to grow. It is woven into a concept with each song being part of the "Aventurera's" story, "the adventurer", is each one of us, in one or another of our forms. It's the Aventurera who goes beyond the Known (the Zone) and is able to grasp, and be thankful for, the beauty of the unknown: the changes and challenges of Life. In a very personal way I am reinventing myself by branching out musically, releasing memories and life lessons to myself. I believe that there is something on this album that you will be able to make your own and relate to in the messages embedded into the soundscapes of these songs.
