Cafe Tacvba
From

We mark Cinco De Mayo with music from south of the border, from the Mayan-influenced flute playing of Horacio Franco to the electronic pop of Café Tacvba. There's music from Café Tacvba, both solo and with Kronos Quartet. Also, listen to music from Ranchera and jazz singer Lila Downs from a live recording in Paris. Then there's music by composer Antonio Zepeda, who sometimes looks to pre-Colombian indigenous music from Mexico. Hear music from Mexican instrument inventor Ariel Guzik, and more.
