Calexico

Saturday, June 15, 2013, 7:00 PM

The dark drama of Calexicco’s desert noir, a mix of traditional Latin sounds with Southwestern country, ’50s jazz, and rock, “has proved that the borders between styles can be as blurrable, as mutable, and porous as those separating countries and cultures.” (Pitchfork) With the great Afro-Peruvian singer Susana Baca, whose “cool, distinct voice [is] as beautiful as any working in pop,” (NY Times) and a wild collaboration between Mexican folklorists Radio Jarocho and the pan-African percussion and vocal group Akoko Nante Ensemble.
