Bachaco Talks Miami Music Scene, Trends, and Legal Weed: "Hell yeah, We Say Yes"

What do you get when you combine eight guys from across the Caribbean and Latin America with a passion for creating sazón? Bachaco.

Named after the leafcutter ant in Venezuela, an insect that's used to make salsa picante, the Afro-Caribbean-roots-rock-cumbia-reggae-ska band recently released its first self-titled album and the crew is already working on a new record.

With upcoming gigs at Blue Martini Brickell, The Stage, and Bougainvillea's, the Bachaco guys are also planning another U.S./Canada tour with hopes of crossing the border into Mexico and Puerto Rico.

So last week, we here at Crossfade sat down and spoke with them about the Miami music scene, trends, and making it in the industry.

And no reggae interview would be complete without some weed talk.
