Taking the namesake of Veracruz's son jarocho music, New York-based Radio Jarocho's inspiration from that region.
Radio Jarocho plays the music, a mix of Afro-Caribbean, Spanish, and Mexican Indigenous dance by bands trying to "stretch the sonic boundaries," according to NPR's Felix Contreras.
"Radio Jarocho does it very much by the numbers but infuses this track with an edgy attitude," Contreras said of the song "Cafe Cafe."
The band plays live at Terraza 7, 40-19 Gleane St. in Elmhurst, on Jan. 4 at 10:30 p.m.
Admission is free, but there is a $5 cover for upstairs mezzanine seating.
