Radio Jarocho plays son jarocho music fashioned after the towns, musicians, and swampy countryside that created it in Veracruz, Mexico. They also write their own songs inspired by this popular genre and tailor them with assorted influences, creating a contemporary repertoire that captures the spirit of the traditional style. The band championed son jarocho by performing over the past decade in dozens of concerts and fandangos in several cities, including New York, Washington DC, and Boston.

With a name that refers partly to the Indian gugu Sai Baba and partly to The Jetsons (Los Supersónicos in Spanish), indie rock collective Babasónicos first emerged in the wave of new Argentine rock bands of the late '80s and early '90s, along with groups like Peligrosos Gorriones and Los Brujos. The outfit quickly became one of the banner groups of the country's sonic underground movement in the late '90s. Lead singer Adrián "Dárgelos" Rodríguez and keyboardist Diego "Uma-T" Tuñón initially decided to create a New Wave style, which didn't fall in line with the established traditions of Argentine rock music. The group's second album Trance Zomba (1994) incorporated a guest DJ, and the ensuing years saw the band experiment with various diverse styles.
Since the release of Jessico in 2001, however, Babasónicos's releases have fallen more in tune with current trends in Argentine music, allowing the band to reach a wider audience with releases like Infame (2003) and Anoche (2005). The band also composed the soundtrack for Vera Fogwill's 2007 movie Las Mantenidas Sin Sueños (Kept and Dreamless). The group's 2008 album Mucho was widely hailed by critics – AllMusic declared the release "easily one of the best rock en español releases of 2008." The disc was a rock masterpiece in miniature, its 10 tracks clocking in at just under 31 minutes in total length. With its latest release A Propósito (2011), Babasónicos continues to produce to some of the most creative and engaging Latin pop music around.

Inspired by ancient myths and codes, Sak Tzevul commemorates and reinterprets native chants and tales through intimate, heartbreaking meditations with an undercurrent of charged rock punctuated with classical inflections. By reaffirming native spirituality, Martinez harnesses the ancestral legacy of his home, Zinancantan, a Tzotzil Mayan village in the mountainous highlands of Chiapas, Mexico. Anchored with the knowledge of his ancestral legacy and traditions, Martinez sustains the energy of his dynamic performances with lyrical and conceptual cohesiveness.  Sak Tzevul expands his musical tribute with ecstatic creations hearkening Pink Floyd and other rock luminaries.  While tackling huge themes including Mexico’s indigenous and colonial past, and today’s popular and material culture, Martinez, delivers a rich synthesis of complex musical, personal and social ideals with philosophical lyrics sung in Tzotzil and Spanish to weave a lively, stimulating musical experience with a clear message

About Venezuelan-American pianist Vanessa Perez, The Washington Post called it right, saying, “Vanessa Perez is not to be taken lightly.” The newspaper’s critic added: “She stormed through some beautiful works at the Venezuelan Embassy, her fiery impetuosity proving her technical prowess in works by Villa-Lobos, Albéniz, Ravel and Rachmaninoff. . . Even Mozart's Sonata in F, K. 332, had muscular energy as she raced through the Allegros. The Adagio was pure grace.” Perez is a product of the same energized musical culture in Venezuela that produced such international stars as conductor Gustavo Dudamel and pianist Gabriela Montero. Praised for a bold, passionate performing style allied to musicianship of keen sensitivity, Perez has been championed by iconic performers. Conductor Zubin Mehta said of the pianist: “Her level of musical perception and artistic awareness impressed me as much as her total command of the keyboard.”

* JOSE CONDE > Mayo 31 > Joe's Pub > CONDE.

Trading the Cuban tres for a vintage Gretsch, Jose Conde’s new music is a refined and personal blend clothed in electric and organic, funky world beats, inspired by trees, elephants, dogs, sexy dresses, and love. In a world music stretch with diverse influences and colors from South Africa to Brazil to Peru etc., with humor and rhythmic phrasing undeniably and soulfully Cuban, yet uniquely Conde, the music is delivered with booty shaking grooves by his new band, the nu Latin groove.
