We’re psyched to host a mobile performance by one of the Mission’s favorite songsters. Be there as multi-instrumentalist Jorge Molina performs original music on piano and vocals. He has been playing piano since the age of 5. Known for walking the Mission with a berimbau, he has made a lifelong commitment to exploring and playing music from indigenous people.

His Project Tierra is where you can hear a small taste of his music online, though the live performances that I’ve seen are considerably more rollicking and melodic. Through all his songs, he pays homage to our ancestors, and Mother Earth. “All of our personal activities are due to us being on earth, but sometimes we don’t behave like polite guests.”

What does a LiveOnBike performance feel like? Check out Janaysa performing a cover of “Maybe Not” by Cat Power at this year’s Bicycle Music Festival.


Jorge is a beloved Mission District performer show here playing berimbao next to his own likeness in Mona Caron’s new mural.

You may recall that we originally scheduled Jorge’s performance for the Nov. 3rd Festival of Light ride. Rain cancelled that performance, but with support from the Green Festival and the Bike Valet crew we’ll have an even better group this time around. Come join us!

Time: 7 PM.

Starting at: 8th and Brannan. Green Festival bike valet.
