(NEW YORK, NY) -- Café Tacvba, widely recognized as Mexico’s leading alternative rock band, will kick off a 15-show tour at New York’s Irving Plaza with shows on November 1-2. The tour includes stops in Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, and more before wrapping up in El Paso, TX on November 24th at Abraham Chavez Theatre. They are touring with special guests Diamante Eléctrico.
Café Tacvba is one of the most influential alternative groups to come out of Latin America, spearheading a non-conformist musical movement with their blending of elements such as rock, indigenous folk, electronic and punk music. With a career spanning over 30 years, they continue to expand an already massive audience of devoted fans throughout the Americas, Europe and beyond.
No Café Tacvba album is like another. Each studio album is guided by an overriding artistic vision, from the styles of songs and instrumentation used, the collaborators involved, and the design of the packaging (usually done by themselves). Each album feels like a reinvention: Re (1994), Avalanche de Éxitos (1996), Revés/YoSoy (1999), Cuatro Caminos (2003), Si No’s (2007), El objeto antes llamado disco (2012), JeiBeibi (2017). His latest album Un Segundo MTV Unplugged (2019).
Being compelling as a live band is in their DNA: they originated as a live act with a cult following, refining their music through multiple performances before ever recording.
Awards include: GRAMMY “Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album” (Cuatro Caminos), Latin GRAMMY “Best Rock Album” (Revés/YoSoy), Latin GRAMMY “Best Alternative Album” (Cuatro Caminos), Latin GRAMMY “Best Rock Song” (twice, for Eres and Esta Vez), Latin GRAMMY “Best Alternative Song” (Volver a Comenzar). Music video awards include: “MTV Legend” award (2009), Latin GRAMMY “Best Long Music Video” for Un Viaje (2006) as well as multiple MTV Viewer’s Choice and Premios Lo Nuestro awards. In 2015, they were recognized with the “Icon” La Musa award of the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame.
