The Chamanas Bring Bordertown Indie Rock to San Antonio

It feels like the indie-rock scene is full of bands trying real hard to project a certain edginess, which is what makes Texas’ own Chamanas a breath of fresh air. The band doesn’t sound like they’re trying to sound like anyone but themselves – an eclectic blend of indie rock, trip-hop and Mexican folk music. Nestled on the border of El Paso and Juarez, the Chamanas take their name from a person who can cure and heal through the use of natural medicine. And one listen to the breathy, chilled-out tone of their 2015 album Once Once, you can easily drift into a peaceful meditative place.

$8-$12, Fri July 27, 9pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary’s St., thelimelightsa.com.
