[Vancouver, BC] Santa Lucia LFR (LFR stands for Latin Funk Rock) may well be Canada’s best kept secret. Like a multi-ethnic gathering of friends, this seven-member, Vancouver-based band has created a sound that evokes the early days of Latin Rock (Santana, War, etc.) while adding their own blend of Funk grooves. Lead by Nicaraguan front man German Cantillo on vocals and guitar, the band has an addictive combination of Nuyorican Boogaloo, West Coast Funk and ever present Cuban grooves engulfing the stage with monstrous horns and bass, and funky breaks with furious lyrics in English and Spanish.

Santa Lucia LFR have just released a new video for their song “Russellfunk” from their third, full-length 2010 album, Suppressed Anthems, which offers a blend of horn-driven music anthems with a social conscience, unique Latin sensibilities with plenty of rock, a shot of salsa, a shed-load of funk, and some high-speed Nicaraguan cumbia, and proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that they can light up any room, even without words. This instrumental jam fest highlights the musical sparks that ignite and then blaze with layer upon layer of radiant, brilliant musicianship & soul-inspiring skill. Playful in its nature, but serious in precision, “Russellfunk” puts the rhythmic heart of Santa Lucia LFR out there directly on the dance floor to party with the people! Watch it on YouTube now.

With a new single on the horizon, Santa Lucia LFR’s line-up of stellar musicians currently includes: Byron Russell on alto sax, Kevin Tang on trombone, Spider Lima on bass, Jeremy Vint on trumpet, Rafael Cajar on Latin percussion, and Stefan Grabowski on drums. Although they may be misunderstood visionaries, their common cause is to bring attention to a dynamic sound that has never really been on the musical radar of this country. Their objective is simple: Santa Lucia LFR wants you to dance. Just how they go about getting your body moving is a little more complex, but these guys from a mix of backgrounds have found a way to present new and original Latin and funk compositions that both the masses and purists alike can enjoy.

As a result of their great appeal and the versatility of their music, Santa Lucia LFR are welcomed in nearly every kind of festival, including the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival, Salmon Arm Blues & Roots Festival, Victoria Ska Fest, Folk on the Rocks Festival in Yellowknife, to the Taste of Fernie, and the Okanagan Winery series at Tinhorn Creek. They have also performed corporate shows for the Diabetes Society of Victoria, CBC French Alliance Society and fundraisers for Canadian Veterans at Billy Bishop Legion as well as the Jazz Cellar Club in Vancouver, to rock clubs in Western Canada and the US, opening for international touring acts such as Ozomatli, Yerba Buena, Los Mococos, The Skatalites, Maxi Priest, The Cat Empire, Los Lobos, Polyrythmics and Israel’s Hadag Nahash at the annual Jewish Chutzpah! Festival.

Stay in touch with the band at and through their social media sites on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

    I was wondering about the self-pleasure. My challenge, I guess, with the sex thing would be to avoid the self-flagellation that could go with self-denial. Is art/poetry the way to enjoy abstinence. Gracia Jamie Anselmo

    How long do I have to use this product before I see results?

    Remember, it’s critical to give Lean Belly 3X an honest chance to work by taking it as recommended for
    at least 60 days. Like all Beyond 40 products, Lean Belly 3X is made with the highest
    quality ingredients, but no product will work miracles overnight.
