The rock band Café Tacvba, (who sing exclusively in Spanish) is constantly opening new creative doors. They first formed in Mexico City in the 1990’s and consistently, over eight albums, they’ve shown themselves to be masters of reinvention and experimentation. They’ve played it all: techno-folk garage rock, pop, ambient electronica, instrumental music, even collaborated with Kronos Quartet, which brings us to their latest - Jei Beibi, which was recorded in Los Angeles in 2016 with their longtime collaborator, the Argentine producer, Gustavo Santaolalla. This latest record ranges from spacey psychedelic rock, tropical rhythms, folk-funk, arena rock, and even a lullaby. Café Tacvba plays in-studio. (From the Archives, 2017.)
