The free Concerts in the Park series starts July 10 and runs through Aug. 21.

LoCura kicks off the Sounds of Summer series at Fay Bainbridge Park on July 10. The concert begins at 7 p.m.

The San Francisco group mixes Latin styles like Rumba Flamenca, Cuban rhythms, Cumbia and Ska together in a brand they’ve dubbed "Califas Flamenkito."

The band is fronted by Spanish-American vocalist Kata Miletich. With lyrics in Spanish, English and Spanglish, themes range from border issues, immigrants’ rights to urban life and making another world possible.

The concert series is presented by the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District. The rest of the summer lineup is:

July 17: Harmonious Wail at Fay Bainbridge Park. Infectious blend of Eastern European folk and American jazz.

July 24: African Showboyz at Fay Bainbridge Park. Tribal ensemble from Ghana, West Africa.

Aug. 14: Tiller’s Folly at Battle Point Park. Americana/Folk/Celtic group from Canada.

Aug. 21: Grupo Meridional at Battle Point Park. Celebrate the last days of summer with sizzling Latin/Cuban dance grooves from the island’s own Alan Simcoe and band.
