Grupo Bakkan

June 08, 2011


8pm $16

Grupo Bakkan was established in 1999.  The group was conceived after a long period of doing live performances in the San Francisco Bay Area as a local band called Toni Nieto y Su Orquesta. Grupo Bakkan is a generation of fresh, creative and original sounds with a new salsa rhythm, BAKKANA!”

BAKKAN was chosen as the name of the band after several trips to Cali, Colombia; where people use this word very often to describe a good mood (to feel good) or basically when is time to party.  The idea in forming the group was to give salsa music a new flavor with sounds from the Caribbean, South and Central America. The hard work and effort paid off and “Grupo Bakkan” was born.
