Cafe Tacuba Tickets
Details of Cafe Tacuba and the Ticket Luck value
It is a Grammy Award and Latin Grammy Award-winning musical group from Naucalpan, Mexico.Mexican folk music player Alejandro Flores is considered the 5th Tacubo. Since the Cuatro Caminos World Tour, Luis "El Children" Ledezma has played the drums in every concert but is not considered an official member of the band.
Previously known as "Alicia Ya No Vive Aqui", the band took its final name from a coffee shop located in downtown Mexico City. The Cafe de Tacuba is still in operation on Tacuba Street, in Mexico City's Historic Center.In their first shows, people would scream "Pinche Juan!" to Ruben because that's the name of one of the band's first underground hits, so he kept the name for the release of the first album. Two years later he got bored and changed it to "Cosme" for the release of "Re" Since then, he has changed his name for every album and world tour.
Their musical style covers a wide variety of genres, though it is most commonly labeled as Rock en Espanol. Their music has been heavily influenced by Mexico's indigenous population and folk music traditions, but also by punk and electronic music and other bands on the Mexico City scene. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of their music is Albarran's nasal voice, which, combined with his impressive lung capacity, makes for a very distinctive sound. They sing entirely in Spanish but have a significant Anglophone following regardless.The song "Chilanga Banda" has a hip-hop beat under a stream of Mexico City slang, "Maria" is a 'bolero' balad about a somewhat romantic ghost, "El Fin de la Infancia" a brass-heavy 'banda ranchera' sound that reflects the influence of 'banda sinaloense', "Desperte" has a tango-driven melody that could have been stolen from a Latin-American soap opera and "El Borrego" is pure speed metal.
They have contributed to movie soundtracks like Amores Perros, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Piedras Verdes and Vivir Mata as well as tribute albums to Jose Jose and Los Tigres del Norte. Cafe Tacuba also collaborated with different artists such as Plastilina Mosh, Kronos Quartet, David Byrne, Celso Pina, Maldita Vecindad, Sekta Core, Enanitos Verdes, and Control Machete. They have played live with Beck, Incubus and Los Tres. Meme is known in the Mexican electronica scene as "DJ Angustias". He is part of the Noiselab collective and will release a solo album in late 2005. He also produced songs for many Mexican artists like Julieta Venegas, Natalia Lafourcade, Ely Guerra, Liquits, among others. Joselo released his first solo album entitled Oso in 2001 and a second one, "Lejos" in 2005. Ruben played in an indie instrumental band called Villa Jardin between 2000-2001 and has a solo album named "Bienvenido al Sueno".
