Featuring throughout the musicfest
Cuatro Con Tres

 

Hold on to your hats, put on your dancing shoes, and groove to the sounds of Cuatro con Tres!

 

The music of Cuatro con Tres is as varied as their meztizo culture dictates: Cumbias, Polkas, Son Cubano, Cha Cha, Boleros, Rock, Rancheras and Reggae.

 

Cuatro con Tres is an all-star Chicano band whose history spans close to a half century. Its members were on picket lines with Cesar Chavez in the 60s, performed alongside Los Lobos, in the 70s, and Pete Seeger in the 80s.

 

 

 

They are veterans of El Teatro Campesino, Flor del Pueblo, Los Compas, Los Peludos, and the San Francisco Mime Troupe.

 

Although some of their music resides in the Smithsonian’s collection in Washington D.C., they are not all old timers. Fresh young twenty year old voices blend flawlessly with their veteran counterparts.
