Jarabe de Palo at The Mercury Ballroom October 12th, 2015
Jarabe de Palo is unquestionably one of the biggest bands on the Hispano-American music scene in the last two decades. Hailing from Spain, they blend rock, funk, jazz and blues in a fusion with flamenco, Afro-Caribbean, Cuban and Brazilian music. Influences with a definite Latin feel intermeshed with other very strong musical influences from the Anglo-Saxon world. The result: pure fusion rock.They have 12 nominations for the Latin Grammy Awards under their belt and collaborationswith artists of the stature of Celia Cruz, Compay Segundo, Ricki Martin, Pavarotti, Alanis Morrissette, Chrissy Hynde (The Pretenders), endorse the quality, credibility and stature of the band.
Paired with supporting act, Appalatin, it will be an evening filled with unique Latin fusion. Appalatin’s foot-stomping, hip-swinging sounds organically unite Appalachian folk and high-energy Latin music. The name, Appalatin, reflects the unexpected meeting in Louisville, KY of Kentucky-raised musicians and masterful Latin émigrés from Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala.
