Cafe Tacvba: "Music Comes From Nature, We Have to Keep It Safe and Love It"
Have some earthy "FON" with Café Tacvba.
When musicians, comedians, and Friends of Nature gather to party, you know it's gonna be a true tree-hugging bash, especially with holistic-minded headliners like Café Tacvba.
"We as humans and society belong to nature and Mother Earth, and we have to be cautious and try to take care of it all the time," says guitarist Emmanuel "Meme" del Real.
"We have to keep it safe and love it. It's one of our main goals."
That must be why Meme and the rest of the Café Tacvba crew will be making their way to the 305 for the first time in four years to headline the second day of the Friends of Nature Arts & Music Festival.

The November 9 and 10 weekend fest will unite musicians, activists, speakers, and other like-minded eco souls for the sole purpose of having a good time while raising environmental awareness.
And hailing from one of the largest cities in the world, this legendary Mexico City rock band knows, from experience, the importance of being environmentally aware.
"It's not a cool thing, but we live in a city that has such a limited consciousness about [the environment]," Meme admits. "Being there and seeing that, it helps you to take a position about the way you wanna live your life.
"I hate it," he says. "I just wanna be sure that what's in my hands, the small things, I can take care of. I will strongly defend all those things and try to have a little bit more of an impact, at least with my family, and try to be an example."
