The world’s premier Post-Latin band! Carne Cruda will be in concert on July 16 at Cloverdale’s Friday Night Live

Raw and ready to rock, Carne Cruda hits the scene with the unbridled energy of the rowdiest Latin music. Blending Surf with Cumbia, Son with Soca, and traditional with indie, their exemplary musicianship is melded with high energy, unbridled enthusiasm, youthful vigor to produce an exciting, captivating show that leaves no butt un-shaken. This funky Latin Surf band is high energy, great to watch and even better to dance to. With lyrics that reflect current issues facing today’s youth in English and Spanish, Carne Cruda combines socially relevant themes with interesting musical statements.
