Thank you to our friend Roy Germano (director of The Other Side of Immigration) for filming our May 2012 set at Casa Mezcal. Watch the video for clips of us performing some of our new tracks, as well as son jarocho classics “Colas” and “La Bamba,” with guest musicians Rana Santacruz, Akoko Nante, and Greg Glassman of the David Wax Museum.
Listen up! Here’s a new interview with Radio Jarocho’s Julia del Palacio and Gabriel Guzmán on “The World,” a weekly radio show co-produced by Public Radio International, the BCC, and WGBH/Boston. The segment, called “Global Hit,” includes clips from the new album as the band talks about the tradition of son jarocho and why they chose to record an album of original songs. You can hear Bruce Wallace’s report “An Urban Twist to Son Jarocho Music” above or read more here.
