Bachaco Live at Poprox This Sunday
Bachaco is a group of four youths from Venezuela, another from Colombia and one more from Jamaica, so named for a leafcutter ant found in the Amazon -- the jungle, not the website. Enotomology be damned, the spicy little suckers are ground up by Indians to create a hot sauce -- the ants, I mean, not the six kids. To quote Wayne Campbell, "it's not just a clever name," because theirs is a spicy blend of reggae and dancehall with cumbia, funk, hip hop, Latin rock 'n' roll, combining the varied sounds of their upbringings in one harmonious intermingling of cultures. Go check them out.
Catch Bachaco live at Poprox (2701 Collins Ave--entry on on side, not Collins) for A.B. Quintanilla presents...La Industria, starting at 9 p.m.
