The project started with three musicians in a cafe and ended up with more than 30 musicians, artists and poets participating to produce a CD of Mission District music, said Francisco Ferrer. Local businesses helped pay for the recording studio time and radio hosts Marcos Gutierrez at KIQI and Chelis Lopez at KPOO jumped in to support it. The launch earlier this month was a great success and the CDs are on sale at Sun Rise Restaurant, Philz Coffee, Restaurant El Trebol or the Red Poppy Art House. You can also e-mail Francisco Ferrer for a CD.

You can also hear some of the musicians at the 16th Anniversary this Friday of La Peña del Sur at Florida Caffe at Florida @ 19th St. But for now, listen and watch the sideshow below.
