In addition to their surprise private performance at the Silent
Movie Theatre in Los Angeles, Café Tacuba also recently unveiled
songs from Cuatro Caminos at Houstons International Festival

(Café Tacubas) inventive blend of folk, pop,
psychedelia and the occasional flexing of a hard rock riff was unpretentious
and endlessly inclusive. - Los Angeles Times Coachella review
Tacubas 1992 critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was
followed by 1994s groundbreaking Re, leading to international
critical praise and White Album comparisons in terms of the album
and the bands importance. Avalancha de Éxitos, a collection
of cover songs, spawned several hits and a 13-country / 59-date
megatour. In 1999, the band released the Grammy-winning 2-CD package:
the instrumental Revés paired with Yo Soy. In addition, Café
Tacuba supported Beck on his Midnight Vultures tour, collaborated
with the Kronos Quartet on last years Grammy-nominated album,
Nuevo, and wrote new songs for the soundtracks to the acclaimed
Mexican films Amores Perros and Y Tu Mama Tambien.
Café Tacubas Vale Callampa EP was released
by MCA Records. The tribute CD contains four songs selected from
the repertoire of another talented, though recently disbanded group
that Café Tacuba is linked to in both friendship and admiration:
Chiles Los Tres.
Tacuba is: Elfego Buendía - lead vocals, guitar; Emmanuel
Del Real - keyboards, programming, vocals, guitar; Enrique Rangel
- bass, vocals; and Joselo Rangel - guitars, vocals.
Tacuba dates include (additional tourdates to be announced):
August 2 Aragon Ballroom Chicago, IL
August 8 Webster Hall New York, NY
