One of México's most popular alternative Spanish rock bands will bring all of its hits — including 'Ingrata' — to the Central Valley this Saturday (Aug. 31).
Café Tacvba, which is about to celebrate 25 years in the music industry, is well-respected by colleagues, fans and even critics alike.
Last year, the band released its latest album, 'El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco' (The Object Formerly Known as Album) and band member Joselo — guitarist and vocals — spoke to Vida en el Valle last week and invited everyone to their show in Fresno.
Question: How important is the Mexican audience that lives in the U.S.?
Answer: "That audience is important because it is an audience that is very loyal, an audience that has followed us throughout so many years and to be in touch with them is important."
Q: Your latest album, 'El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco' was well-received by the critics — the Rolling Stone magazine even compared you to The Beatles. How do you take that type of comparison?
A: "First of all, it is a compliment that means we must be doing something right, but I would not like to take that compliment beyond that. I would not like to say, 'yes, we are like The Beatles.' I think it has to do with what The Beatles did; first of all they were a band that did songs, somehow, they were simple songs and little by little they became a more conceptual band, a band that liked to experiment a lot. So the fact that they compared us with them, or that they gave us that adjective, means that we are a band that evolves and experiments, so I do like that, but the fact that we could be The Beatles no."
