Locarno Band featuring Tonye Aganaba at the Night Market

August 8 5:00 to 8:30 pm

The Locarno Band with Special Guest Tonye Aganaba will be turning up the heat at The Night Market on August 8.

Locarno is the Latin project of Paperboys frontman Tom Landa. The music, like him, is part Mexican but with strong doses of Cuban Son, Folk Music, Pop and Funk. There are threads of Son Jarocho and Salsa but the songs are more edgy and contemporary than that. The music could be compared to Manu Chao, Ozomatli or Rodrigo and Gabriela but although there are similarities it is truly original and a new flavour in the Latin music genre.

Tom's goal is to create music which is heavily influenced by Mexican music but using the elements and musicians around him in his hometown of Vancouver. Perhaps where the band shines the most is in the live shows which feature Tom Landa on jaranas and guitars, Kalissa Landa on violin, Robin Layne on marimba, congas and timbales, Pedro Mota on guitar an vocals, Aaron McKinney on bass, Liam MacDonald on drums, congas and pandero, Mark D’Angelo on trumpet and Nick La Rivere on trombone.

The night will also feature Tonye Aganaba. Tonye Aganaba is a multidisciplinary artist, musician, and performer. They were born in London, England to parents of Nigerian and Zimbabwean descent, and raised in the picturesque seaside town of Weymouth, Dorset. At the age of 13 Tonye moved to Canada. Tonye’s style is fluid, but can be described as Soul/Neo-Folk/R&B, and although unique - they have been likened to Lauryn Hill, Ani DiFranco and Chaka Khan.

The music will be enhanced by a market, hosted by Trail's incrEDIBLE Farmers Market, and will feature beer, wine and cider at our Adult Only Beverage Garden! You will be able to enjoy artisanal food from the best food trucks and vendors in the area including fabulous local artists, designers and craft-makers.

“Trail & District Arts Council is super excited about partnering again with incrEDIBLE Trail and we can’t wait to feel the buzz again at this fabulous summer event,” said Executive Director, Nadine Tremblay. “The combination of food trucks, vendors, live music, beer garden and the beautiful setting of Gyro Park is exciting. There will be something for everybody and we hope that Greater Trail comes out to take in some music, dance and celebrate summer together outdoors.”

Admission is a $2 minimum donation.
