Art Music of the Day: “12/12” by Kronos Quartet & Café Tacuba

Posted in Art Music, Arts & Culture, Pop Music, The Journal of Mexican Art Music by Omar Ávalos Gallegos on November 9, 2011

The world-famous Kronos Quartet, a string quartet from San Francisco, joins Mexican pop group Café Tacuba for an experimental piece of art music. This is a fusion of pop and art music.

The work contains random looped samples of music and sounds ranging from the drum and pipe of the voladores de Papantla, club music, ordinary street sounds and a sample of the symphonic work Sensemayá by Silvestre Revueltas.
