Santa Fe's vibrant and eclectic music scene is as diverse as the city's rich cultural heritage. On any given night, you can shimmy to the blues, two-step to country, salsa to Latin American music, or boogie down to bluegrass. Santa Fe's fine tapestry of musical genres also includes Americana, rock, jazz, classical, flamenco, reggae, electronica, avant-garde, Native American, African, and others.
Santa Fe is also home to several top-notch recording studios and independent record labels. Jono Manson's Kitchen Sink and John Treadwell's Frogville Records studio, in particular, are well-known in New Mexico and beyond, drawing both local and out-of-town musicians, including John Popper of Blues Traveler and American Idol star Crystal Bowersox.
Together, Santa Fe's musicians, promoters, record labels and studios work together to create a singular Santa Fe sound, reflective of the City Different's natural and cultural landscape: Raw, edgy, original music with rhythms that move the body and soul like a New Mexico rainstorm.
You can hear the magic of the Santa Fe sound in the city's bars, clubs, and restaurants, ranging from the historic El Farol on Canyon Road to Second Street Brewery, a local favorite, to the more upscale Vanessie. Most of the venues are small, allowing for an intimate live music experience. On a grander scale, Santa Fe is also home to several major venues, including the Santa Fe Opera -- one of the most beautiful and acoustically rich outdoor settings in the world -- Sol Santa Fe, and the historic Lensic Performing Arts Center. Each is a frequent stop for national and international touring acts, including Wilco, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, Jimmy Cliff and Public Enemy. During the summer months, the Santa Fe Bandstand Series turns the city's historic plaza into a giant dance floor, drawing locals and tourists alike.
Music is as integral a part of Santa Fe art and culture as our famous galleries and restaurants. Find out for yourself -- check out one of the many fun live performances going on tonight in Santa Fe.

Dining at Andiamo is
a simple experience.
We prepare the finest, local and seasonal ingredients a la minute with the utmost care and respect. Our menu is inspired by Italian cuisine, but as food is born of the region, we try to stay true to our relationships with local growers. For that reason, we've continuously nurtured a strong connection between the Santa Fe Farmers Market and our kitchen -- melding indigenous foods whenever possible, with key Italian imports. We crave these earthy, effortless flavors long after the meal has ended.
Eating sustains more than the body. Dining at Andiamo inspires conversation and evokes memories. That's why we see Andiamo as a collective experience for people who love food.

Opened in 2006 by Chef/Owner James Campbell Caruso, La Boca is an intimate Spanish tapas restaurant in the heart of downtown Santa Fe. Influenced by his travels in Spain, Chef James cultivates synergies of authentic Spanish ingredients to create dishes both traditional and modern. Dishes such as smoky grilled eggplant topped with rich manchego, sweet saffron honey, and briny capers or thinly sliced tuna drizzled with blood orange aioli and topped with kalamata olives and smoked sea salt create a constellation of different flavors in every bite. "We're influenced by the exuberance of Spanish cooking," says Chef James. "La Boca is our interpretation of the great excitement created in Spain about food." One of the keys to La Boca's culinary success is its commitment to the highest quality ingredients. Chef James explains, "We strive to get the best, most authentic ingredients. This means staying true to the Spanish tradition to sourcing products regionally, which we do through our participation in the Santa Fe Farm to Restaurant Delivers program, and through the direct relationships we have with local producers of meats, dairy, and produce. What we can't find locally, we source directly from Spain--chorizo, pimenton, olives, etc. Sometimes we do both; for example we have both a local and a Spanish goat cheese and we take advantage of each unique flavor.
With the feel of a lively European wine bar, La Boca also features an extensive selection of carefully chosen mediterranean and South American wines. Knowledgeable and animated staff graciously guide customers to the perfect wine to complement their meals. La Boca also prides itself on being an ambassador of Spanish sherry culture, transporting its guests to Cadiz in the crisp cool flavors of Fino, or the deep fig-essence of a Pedro Ximenez.
La Boca shares its passion for Spanish food wine and culture through special events. La Boca hosts Flamenco guitar legend, "Chuscales" every Monday (no cover), and Nacha Mendez, guitarist and songstress who sings music from around the Spanish-speaking world. Additionally, La Boca hosts a monthly seminar with various topics ranging from cooking demonstrations, sherry tastings, wine tastings, and more!
Chef James is the author of El Farol: Tapas and Spanish Cuising, and will release his new book, Espana: Exploring the Flavors of Spain in May. This beautifully photographed book includes a primer on Spanish ingredients, as well as over 50 recipes for tapas, stews, meats, seafood and vegetables; scrumptious soups; hearty main dishes; and delectable desserts, all using fresh produce, the finest cheeses and meats, and traditional spices.
