Locarno is the Latin project of Juno award-winning musician Tom Landa. The music is equal parts Mexican and Canadian.

In 2006, Landa was awarded a Canada Council grant to study traditional Mexican music in Veracruz, Mexico.

Since their first album, the band has honed in their sound and incorporated more influences from Colombia, Africa, Mexico, Venezuela and Brazil.

Locarno released their second album Luz Y Sombra in November 2015. It features 10 original songs and two traditional Mexican folk songs.
