Justin Ancheta has been a featured artist in California, traveling the globe from Spain to Hawaii and throughout the United States for the past ten years, a local resident artist at the acclaimed Yoshi's SF Jazz venue, and continues to expand his horizon of sound from cumbia rhythms mixed with folklyrico. Ancheta's roots from his family heritage in Spain and the Phillipines have brought him closer to the sound of Flamenco and a deep respect for any indigenous sound teachings. A native of California, Ancheta sings in English, Spanish, Hebrew, and wishes to connect the intentions of himself and others in moments shared such as the intimate settings of the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco.
Raised in the Sierra Foothills of California, Ancheta brings a part of the American River with him, sounds that embraces the native people of the land and the lyrics to find direction back to the earth. Press have coined his music to be a mix of Folklore with spoken word, described as Folklyrico-Americano. With shows world wide, this is an opportunity to see an International artist in the intimate setting of a living room to celebrate life with reverence for music and each other.
