SXSW Music is proud to announce this year’s Thursday Auditorium Shores show, presented by NPR Music, featuring some of Latin America’s genre-defining artists. Cafe Tacvba makes their SXSW debut on Thursday, March 14 at Auditorium Shores, sharing the stage with Molotov and Bajofondo.
Molotov, best known for their politically charged lyricism, is continually refining their art and crafting new ways to communicate their message. Four Latin-Grammys, five studio albums and one documentary, Gimme The Power, into their career, we still find the group powering through various festival and events around the world.
Also taking the stage is tango-fusion collective Bajofondo. Co-founded by two-time Academy Award winning, multi-Grammy producer Gustavo Santaolalla, Bajofondo has now successfully forged themselves as a bridge between centuries. Fatefully formed in 2002, the group pieces together classic 20th century Tangero instrumentation with intelligent 21st century electronic-production design to form a synergy of danceable proportions.
Headlining the show will be none other than Latin-rock sensation Cafe Tacvba. There is no way to downplay the importance Tacvba has had to their genre or even Latin music as a whole. From the early success in the 90s to their latest album El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco (2012) the group’s founding mission has always been to provide the Mexican zeitgeist a voice.
Come out Thursday (gates at 4:00pm) to this free and open event and take part of it all!
