Marc Ribot & David Hidalgo

The West Coast debut of the Border Music project brings together two supremely cosmopolitan guitarists, Marc Ribot and David Hidalgo, the latter of Los Lobos fame. As lead guitarist and vocalist of the legendary East LA band, Hidalgo has been a creative force straddling the border of rock, R&B, cumbia, Tex-Mex and country for four decades. In the 1990s he co-led the wildly experimental roots band Latin Playboys with fellow Los Lobos member Louie Pérez. Ribot, meanwhile, is a celebrated denizen of New York’s wild and wooly “Downtown” scene, where his Los Cubanos Postizos (The Prosthetic Cubans) devised ingeniously bent arrangements of classic Arsenio Rodriguez tunes. In addition to serving as an instrumental muse to Elvis Costello, Tom Waits and John Zorn, Ribot has also launched iconoclastic ensembles including Ceramic Dog. In creating the Border Music project, Ribot and Hidalgo have mashed up their two primary bands, with Los Lobos drummer Cougar Estrada joining Cubanos Postizos bassist Brad Jones, keyboardist Anthony Coleman and percussionist EJ Rodriguez. The amalgam is rootsy and mercurial, thoughtful, soulful and hugely entertaining.

"A one-of-a-kind guitarist equally adept providing an atmospheric backdrop for Tom Waits as he is calling down the heavens with skronky free jazz. " — Los Angeles Times on Marc Ribot
"David Hidalgo still amazes as a multi-instrumentalist, easily moving from violin to accordion, then unleashing emotion soaked electric guitar leads. " — Hollywood Reporter
