Latin Grass Music comes to Greensboro! Che Apalache, or “my Appalachian homeboy,” is a four-man string band based in Buenos Aires with members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States. The group’s founder Joe Troop, is a North Carolina native who moved to Argentina in 2010. Joe spent his time playing in the local music scene and teaching bluegrass and old-time music. In 2013, he and three of his most dedicated students joined to form Che Apalache.
While Che Apalache began as a traditional Appalachian string band, their music has since evolved to include Latin American styles as well, resulting in a new genre affectionately called “Latin Grass.” And it’s been an invigorating sound ever since.
