New original music that bubbled up from deep within the melting pot that is the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 2001, Bayonics have been writing original songs that incorporate elements of Funk, Timba, Hip Hop, Jazz, Reggae, and Rock. With band members whose ethnic backgrounds range from Salvadorian, Peruvian, Mexican, Japanese and Samoan to Irish and African American, their compositions and performances are just as diverse as the people of the Bay Area.
Bayonics started when a salsa cover band called "Mala Fama" (a group born from the Brazilian drumming ensemble "Loco Bloco") joined forces with a funk and hip-hop project called Natoma. It is this combination of folkloric influences and modern funk and hip hop that defines Bayonics.
