Boca do Rio strengthens its foundation as the Mission’s longest-playing and hardest-hitting Brazilian-American funk band. After a decade performing all original material during the heyday of San Francisco’s live music scene, Boca has evolved into a multi-layered electro-funk party boat with a sound that is fluid and edgy, adaptable and free. Born of the mixing of waters of Brazil and the San Francisco Bay, Boca do Rio has created musicá organicá – music that developed through the rhythm of living and working between the Americas. For this performance, Boca do Rio features the talented Eva Scow, a virtuoso on mandolin who weaves beautiful improvisations over Boca’s beats and melodies.
