Latinx double bill pairs Chilean-French singer/songwriter and outrageously fun, all-female, “post- mariachi” band.
“A righteous agenda and a tart, jazzy voice.” —New York Times on Ana Tijoux
“Top-notch musicianship, mariachi swagger for days, and a performance style that captures all the power and emotion you’d hope for.” —NPR on Flor de Toloache
This evening of new acoustic Latinx music pairs an acclaimed a rapper-turned-folksinger and an outrageously fun, all-female, “post- mariachi” band. Ana Tijoux made her mark with such fiercely political international rap hits as“1977,” featured on the TV series Breaking Bad. Now, flanked by guitarists, she’s exploring the more intimate sound of the classic Latin American songbook that influenced her youth. Sharing the bill, the Latin Grammy-winning, all-female, multinational band Flor de Toloache infuses classic Mexican mariachi and ranchero with bursts of hip hop, soul, jazz and salsa—and are about as much fun as it gets.
