Boundary Breaking "Latingrass" Band Che Apalache Announces Crowdfunding Campaign

Boundary Breaking “Latingrass” Band Che Apalache Announces Crowdfunding Campaign

In 2017-18, Che Apalache embarked on three US tours, along the way gathering features on NPR's "All Things Considered" and performing at venues including the Kennedy Center. In 2017, they recorded and released their debut record totally DIY. In 2019, this four-man string band based in Buenos Aires, Argentina with members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States, have the opportunity to travel to Nashville to record with Béla Fleck, who will produce their new album! They're launching an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help realize this dream!
Here's the link for the crowdfunding campaign:

What began as a bluegrass band that North Carolina fiddler Joe Troop formed with three of his students after moving to Argentina in 2010 has evolved into a rich musical collaboration resulting in an unlikely concept: the fusion of Latin American and Appalachian music. Che Apalache use this mashup of styles to address social issues and bridge the gap dividing the Americas. The new crop of songs draws inspiration from traditions around the world with classic bluegrass and Argentinian music remaining central. Evoking images from Appalachia to the Andes, the tales they tell are truly American and an honest musical portrait of the Americas.

Che Apalache has decided that 5% of all funds raised from their crowdfunding campaign will go to Siembra NC. Siembra NC is a Latinx immigrant organization in North Carolina that trains immigrant community members to defend their rights, organizes grassroots committees to build their power as a community, and wages campaigns to stop detention, deportation, criminalization and other forms of exploitation.
