EVENTBRITE MUSIC SERIES


Presented in Association with


Latin GRAMMY-winning Guatemalan singer-songwriter GABY MORENO, “an artist worthy of soundtracking a future Quentin Tarantino film,” (Popmatters) and a collection of very special guests dive into the classic Pan American songbook of the 1950s and ‘60s, playing music from Moreno’s forthcoming Nonesuch Records release Spangled (Fall 2019), which she made in collaboration with the legendary composer/producer Van Dyke Parks. An early glimpse of the album—the single “The Immigrants,” a fierce reworking of a 20-year-old song by Trinidadian calypso legend David Rudder—moved NPR Music to say, “Gaby Moreno is on the kind of creative streak that usually results in recordings that not only stand the test of time, but also set new creative standards.” Flor de Toloache, NYC’s first all-women mariachi group, and Mexican singer/guitarist Caloncho join the performance as Gaby’s special guests.

Centered around the core of the California-born brothers Luis Humberto (vocals), Rafael (bass), and Julián (keys) Navejas—with Ángel Sánchez (drums) and Javier Mejía (guitar) rounding out the lineup—Mexico City-based ENJAMBRE is a chart-topping Rock en Español band with a reverence for classic rock; they cite Creedence, Zeppelin, and early Beatles as influences (along with “nostalgia y el rock de los buenos tiempos”). They released their first record, Consuelo En Domingo, in 2005 and their most recent, Imperfecto Extraño, in 2017.

EL DAVID AGUILAR, a captivating indie folk artist who mixes influences from across the Latin music world, is “one of the most versatile, creative, and groundbreaking contemporary singer-songwriters to come out of Mexico’s independent scene.” (SXSW) He was nominated for five Latin GRAMMY Awards last year for his outstanding album Siguiente.

The LATIN ALTERNATIVE MUSIC CONFERENCE, which is celebrating its 20th year, “is to Latin alternative the way the Sundance Film Festival is to indie movies.” (The New York Times)
