Los Bahianatos (by * ya * NAH * tos) specialize in Colombian dance music featuring the button accordion, including cumbia, vallenato and everything in between. It’s a blend of early Colombian roots music and popular hits by some of Colombia’s most influential artists of the 20th century, such as Alejo Durán, Andres Landero, Lisandro Meza, Calixto Ochoa, Alfredo Gutierrez, Enrique Diaz, Miguel Durán, Romualdo Brito, Diomedez Diaz and many more! Founded in Oakland, California, during the early months of the pandemic, Los Bahianatos are the premier cumbia and vallenato band en ‘La Bahia’.
The Natural Grocery Company is proud to present this series in partnership with SunJams and Javier Navarrette Music Productions.
SunJams is committed to funding children’s music education in underserved public elementary schools. Your donation will help support this ongoing program.
All of the proceeds will go directly to our network of local musicians, each of whom have been severely impacted by the lack of events during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Whether you donate $10, $100, or $1000 – any amount helps and will allow us to keep bringing music to our community! As always, your donation to SunJams 501(c)3 may qualify as tax exempt.
Javier Navarrette Music Productions continues to bring live music to several venues around the Bay Area. Javier has been a professional musician and music educator in the Oakland Unified School District for the past 20 years. Over the past few years Navarrette has produced outdoors events that have proven instrumental in enabling musicians to deal with some of the fallout of the pandemic and shutdown that followed.
