more information  Know Before You Go

Café Tacvba return to Austin with special guests Diamante Eléctrico as part of their USA Tour 2021! Together since 1989 after meeting in college, Grammy winners and Mexico City-based indie rockers Café Tacvba are rightfully credited as the preeminent band to emerge from the “Rock en Español” movement of the early ‘90s. The quartet has remained one of the biggest acts on the Latin music scene since, inspiring two generations of artists in their wake. While critics look at these reasons to signify Café Tacvba’s importance, legions of global music followers are enamored with them simply because of their music, which is broadly appealing not only because it is groundbreaking, but also because of its fun, madcap and ever-changing nature.

Every studio album released by the band so far has been produced by Gustavo Santaolalla except for Cuatro Caminos which was produced by Santaolalla, Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Weezer) and Andrew Weiss (Ween). Cuatro Caminos was featured on several Top Albums of 2003 charts, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Blender Magazine and won the 2004 Grammy award for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album. In 2017 they released their album Jei Beibi which won the Latin Grammy for Best Alternative Album.

With their last album Un Segundo MTV Unplugged, Café Tacvba became the first band to tape a second album for the acclaimed series affording them the opportunity to record new versions of their songs with full orchestra.
