Che Apalache

A banjo and mandolin tango? Yes, please.


Friday, Sept. 20, 2019

7:30 p.m. // Discovery Theatre

Che Apalache represents a culture clash gone right. They’re a four-man string band based in Buenos Aires, with members from the U.S., Mexico, and Argentina. Singing in Spanish and English, they perform everything from bluegrass standards to Latin roots music, and originals that blend the best of both.

A banjo and mandolin tango? Yes, please. Evoking images from Appalachia to the Andes, their debut, “Latingrass,” is a testament to the power of cultural and musical exchange, and it instantly won over banjo master Béla Fleck, who produced their latest, chart-topping album.

Their instrumental prowess and tight vocal harmonies invite you to step back in time while retaining a sense of timelessness. Discover a new sound blend that’ll have your toes tappin’.
