Che Apalache is a four-man string band based in Buenos Aires with members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States making huge waves in the roots music scene. The group’s founder is Joe Troop (fiddle), a North Carolinian multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer who moved to Argentina in 2010. While patiently carving out a niche in the local music scene, Joe taught bluegrass and old-time music for a living. That’s how he met Pau Barjau (banjo), Franco Martino (guitar) and Martin Bobrik (mandolin), his most dedicated students. They quickly became picking buddies and in 2013 decided to hit the stage. Che Apalache began as a bluegrass band, but eventually incorporated Latin American styles into their repetoire. Combining instrumental prowess with tight vocal harmonies, they have created an authentic blend of genres to reflect the nature of their lives. Evoking images from Appalachia to the Andes, their debut album, “Latingrass,” is a testament to a powerful cultural and musical exchange. The band's newest album, "Rearrange My Heart," is produced by Béla Fleck and has received great acclaim from Rolling Stone Magazine, Billboard, and Bluegrass Today, among others. https://www.cheapalache.com/
