Café Tacvba, The Object Formerly Known as a Record, Nov. 19th


Dear Friends,
The Portland Latin American Film Festival is pleased to present the “album movie”, Café Tacvba, The Object Formerly Known as a Record (El Objeto antes llamado Disco, La película).
Save the date: Thursday, November 19th at 7:00 PM at the Holywood Theatre (4122 NE 41st Ave. Portland, OR 97212.) The film is shown in Spanish with English subtitles.
The film portrays the Mexican Rock band Café Tacvba in the process of creating their latest album. It combines the musical and philosophical ideas of the band members, beautifully rendered performances and a poetic visual-score that culminates in a truly intimate portrait of Café Tacvba’s creative process.

Café Tacuba (stylized Café Tacvba) is a band from Mexico. The group gained popularity in the early 1990s. They were founded in 1989, and since then have had the same musical lineup of Rubén Isaac Albarrán Ortega (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Emmanuel “Meme” del Real Díaz (keyboards, piano, programming, rhythm guitar, melodica, vocals), José Alfredo “Joselo” Rangel Arroyo (lead guitar, vocals), and Enrique “Quique” Rangel Arroyo: (bass guitar, electric upright bass, vocals). Mexican folk music player Alejandro Flores is considered the 5th “tacubo”, as he has played the violin in almost every Café Tacvba concert since 1994. Since the Cuatro Caminos World Tour, Luis “El Children” Ledezma has played the drums in every concert but is not considered an official member of the band.
 Every studio album released by the band so far has been produced by Gustavo Santaolalla except for Cuatro Caminos which was produced by Santaloalla, Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Weezer) and Andrew Weiss (Ween). Cuatro Caminos was featured on several Top Albums of 2003 charts, including Rolling Stone, New York Times, Blender Magazine and won the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album.
Tickets are $9.00 and can be purchased at the door the day of the event at the Hollywood Theatre.
Portland Latin American Film Festival (PDXLAFF) serves the community as a non-profit cultural promoter under the guidance of the Hollywood Theatre.
