Mariachi Meets Tom Waits: The Music of Rana Santacruz from Michal Shapiro on Vimeo.
TONIGHT'S RANA SANTACRUZ CONCERT IS SOLD OUT
A Mexican native living in Brooklyn, NY, Rana Santacruz is considered one of the artists currently redefining the sound of Mexican American music. His music, often called "Mexican Bluegrass" or "Irish Mariachi" starts in Ireland, runs through Appalachia, swings through New Orleans, and careens across most of Mexico. Santacruz’s songs seem to belong on a magical-realistic novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez or Mexican author Juan Rulfo and tell tales of funerals, loyal dogs and towns flooded with tears.
