Bachaco Playing UM Thursday, DWNTWN Series Friday

The members of Bachaco are going to be busy little bees over the next few days. Well, ants maybe. Because, as you know, their name refers to a Brazilian

leafcutter ant. Entomology lessons aside, the SoFla-based fusion group

is going to be performing live at UM for the Patio Jam tomorrow. Then

on Friday they'll be at the Tina Hills Pavilion in Bayfront Park,

participating in the beloved DWNTWN Series.


for those that don't know, is a group of young dudes hailing from

Colombia, Venezuela and Jamaica. And that assortment of nationalities

shines through in their music--a bilingual, upbeat and very danceable

blend of cumbia, Latin rock, reggae and dancehall. Vocalist Eddy,

bassist Jose, guitarist-vocalist Matt, trumpet player Bruce and drummer

Domingo just returned from a tour of Argentina, and they're working on

their debut record with producer German Ortiz.
