Navarro moved to Eugene from east Los Angeles in 1973 as a member of the band Mithrandir
. He said the band wanted to get out of Los Angeles and kept driving north in search of a better locale.
Also on tap: the Brazilian jazz, samba, bossa nova tunes of Sun Bossa; the ranchera-nortena stylings of La Tierra del Sol; Brazilian Forro dance music from Macaco Velho; the salsa music of Caliente; and the modern vocal music of Mithrandir.
Two of the bands, Mithrandir and Sandunga, haven't performed together in many years and will reunite for this festival.
For Mithrandir, future gigs are a good possibility - he and "the sisters' were already rehearsing together when the call for the Latin Music Festival came, said Jorge Navarro, the group's guitarist and lead singer.
