Presented by Justin Ancheta and Artist Migration (duration 90 minutes)
This performance by Justin Ancheta was made possible in part by the generous support of the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation.
Justin Ancheta is positively-charged, high-energy music from the Bay Area. Bringing together exotic world sounds with some heavy doses of funk and reggae, lacing socially-conscious lyrics with guitar melodies over a steady foundation of drums, percussion, and bass, he creates a rhythm bed for everyone to enjoy. Locally acclaimed, Ancheta plays venues such as the Independent, Yoshi’s, and the Great American Music Hall, while his tour schedule has taken him from Barcelona to Hawaii. After more than a decade of shows and touring, he has shared the stage with The Wailers, Joan Baez, and Charles Neville to name a few.
