23/24 Hop Presents

Unfortunately, the Cachitas Now! outdoor concert scheduled for Wednesday night has been canceled. However, you can catch the Argentinian band on Thursday with our partners at Barnarts as part of their Feast & Field Music Series. And we look forward to hosting these incredible artists in the future.

Swooping hooks and party grooves from Argentina's identity-inclusive cumbia band! Direct from Buenos Aires! The band celebrates difference and reclaims the love song for all. Mixing in tango, folk motifs and electronics, the seven-piece Cachitas Now! moves from hyperpop anthems to swirling ballads. 

Their lyrics call out social issues, push for women's empowerment, and reject sexual and gender stereotypes to tell everyday stories. And they do it all with the joy of a crowded dance floor.

The US debut tour is produced by Center Stage, a public diplomacy program of the US Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts.

Generously supported by the Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation.

Building belonging in La Plata, the university town outside Buenos Aires, and home to Argentina's hot indie scene, the exuberant Cachitas Now! first came together in 2011.

The seven members hail from all over Argentina, and a diversity of personal experiences, backgrounds and musical tastes brings an authenticity to their unique party of sound that stretches from traditional Argentine cumbia, tango and folk idioms to urban rhythms like trap and reggaeton.

Busting out of concerts and clubs, Cachitas Now! is gathering a growing community of artists and activists to animate public spaces with parties, festivals, carnivals and fairs. It's a commitment to shared daily struggles, and the rights of all people to decide who they are, where they can gather, who they can love.  

Cachitas Now! has released two studio albums: Cumbia Desgenerada (2016) and Chonga (2019) which was recognized with a nomination for Best Tropical Album at the Gardel 2020 Awards.

“There’s an idea in our culture that love is supposed to be painful. We want to change that.”
