Louisville’s Mercury Ballroom announced a Jarabe de Palo show set for Oct. 12 Monday.
Hailing from Spain, the band blends rock, funk, jazz and blues in a fusion with flamenco, Afro-Caribbean, Cuban and Brazilian music. Influences with a definite Latin feel intermeshed with other musical influences from the Anglo-Saxon world.
The band has 12 nominations for the Latin Grammy Awards under their belt and collaborations with artists of the stature of Celia Cruz, Compay Segundo, Ricki Martin, Pavarotti, Alanis Morrissette and Chrissy Hynde of The Pretenders.
Louisville band Appalatin will be paired with the group as an opener. The name, Appalatin, reflects the unexpected meeting in Louisville, KY of Kentucky-raised musicians and Latin émigrés from Ecuador, Nicaragua and Guatemala. The band hinted at their appearance Thursday.
Tickets are $30 in advance. Showtime is 8 p.m., doors open at 7 p.m. All ages are welcome. Service charges not included on ticket prices. Tickets subject to price increases day of show. Tickets may be purchased here.
