Their fusion of cumbia and dancehall rhythms reflects the Venezuelan, Colombian, and Jamaican nationalities of the six band members. With trumpets held high and Spanglish lyrics shout-sung, their sound is alt-rock reggae one moment and Latin hip-hop the next. Whatever the genre, Bachaco will make you dance.
The band is named for a leafcutter ant found in the Amazon rain forest, used in hot sauces, and considered a crunchy aphrodisiac. See if this Bachaco puts you in a similar mood.
