Music on the Porch: Che Apalache

April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Che Apalache is a four-man string band based in Buenos Aires with members from Argentina, Mexico, and the United States. The group’s founder is Joe Troop (fiddle), a North Carolinian multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and composer who moved to Argentina in 2010. While playing the local music scene, Joe taught bluegrass and old-time for a living. That’s how he met Pau Barjau (banjo), Franco Martino (guitar), and Martin Bobrik (mandolin).

In 2017 the band received grants from the North Carolina Humanities Council and the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities to tour the United States. At the prestigious Appalachian String Band Music Festival, they were awarded first place in the Neo-Traditional band competition. Evoking stories and images from Appalachia to the Andes, their debut album Latingrass reflects a powerful cultural and musical exchange. Catch a listen on YouTube or WUNC’s The State of Things.

This event is free and open to the public. Special thanks to our co-sponsors, Carolina Hispanic Association and the UNC Latina/o Studies Program. Trae una manta de picnic y quédate un rato!
