The dark drama of Calexico’s desert noir, a mix of traditional Latin sounds with Southwestern country, 50s jazz and rock, “has proved that the borders between styles can be as blurrable, as mutable, as porous as those separating countries and cultures” (Pitchfork). Also on the bill is the great Afro-Peruvian singer Susana Baca, whose “cool, distinct voice (is) as beautiful as any working in pop” (The New York Times); and a wild collaboration between Mexican folklorists Radio Jarocho and the pan-African percussion and vocal group Akoko Nante Ensemble.
