Cafe Tacvba Celebrates 25 Years With Fall Tour!
With rare objection, Café Tacuba is credited far and wide as the preeminent band to have arisen from the rock en español movement of the early ’90s. The Mexican four-piece unfortunately isn’t well characterized by the rock en español tag, for the “rock music sung in Spanish” descriptor does little justice to the stylistic diversity and creative strides showcased by Café Tacuba over the course of their career. The band employs a standard rock lineup of guitar/bass/drums with vocals, certainly, but the members also incorporate electronics as well as exotic instrumentation into their music, which encompasses styles as divergent as punk and ballads, as well as regional Mexican and ambient electronica. No Café Tacuba album sounds quite like another, for the band generally pursues a grand artistic vision for each project that goes all the way from the scope of the album to which musical styles will be fused, to which collaborators are best suited for the performances, to the actual packaging design of each release. For such creative reasons, Café Tacuba is beloved by critics and cultural observers who appreciate such ambition and originality.
