For the launch of the Bandcamp City Guides, we are pleased to shine a light on a city that’s often made headlines for all the wrong reasons. Although long in the shadows of neighboring San Francisco, Oakland is a city embedded with a rich cultural history. It’s a place that has at times served as home to musicians of heritage and genre as varied as the brilliant jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck to seminal West Coast rapper Tupac. There’s also Sly Stone, the Pointer Sisters, Souls of Mischief, Rogue Wave and Del the Funky Homosapien, but that’s almost missing the point. For several years now, we’ve had our sights on Oakland and what we’ve continually observed is a rising tide of musicians as diverse and masterly as this magical metropolis’ musical forebears.
