Brooklyn's Los Hacheros, modern-day torchbearers of the Golden Age of Latin music, revives folkloric styles like son montuno, guaracha and salsa, and often combine them with Bomba, a fiery rhythm from the mountains of Puerto Rico. "Los Hacheros has the magic of group improvisation," says bassist William Ash.  "We play in a style that is swing oriented and emphasizes the Cuban clave like great ones of old: Arsenio, Reve, Ritmo..."

A band of only 5 musicians, Los Hacheros can sound like a conjunto of 12. Eddie Venegas (Marc Anthony, Orquestra Broadway), who plays violin and sings chorus, improvises mambos on the trombone, Itai Kriss (Edmar Castaneda, Grupo Latin Vibe) sings, plays flute, campana, and guiro, while Papote Jimenez is in charge of lead vocals, soulful soneos (improvised verses) and congas. William Ash (Alfredo de la Fe, Brenda K Starr) holds down the tumbaos on baby bass while Jacob Plasse plays the tres, a guitar-like instrument originating from the Oriente Province in Cuba.

Their debut album Pilon was a well-received introduction to the band and received critical praise from tastemakers including Wax Poetics, Vibe Magazine, and The Washington City Paper, amongst others. Wax Poetics states, "The groove to this music is deep," while The City Paper boasts, "...its solid arrangements and lively original songs have impressed old-school salseros and young music fans alike."

Los Hacheros recorded their sophomore album Bambulaye live to vintage analog tape, giving the music a raw, but warm and open sound similar to the Latin legends that have inspired them. "Bambulaye was recorded to be gritty, driving, and infectious, with the goal to get you up and dancing from first listen," says producer/guitarist Jacob Plasse. "I wanted this record to feel and sound the way it does when we play our final sets at 3 AM, exhausted in East Harlem dives. Suddenly the band comes to life and all the old dancers are at it like it was 1970 again.  In those moments, we feel like we could play all night."

New Mexico Culture Squared (NMC2) is a NM Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) project to build and manage partnerships between DCA institutions and cultural organizations that will enhance the impact, effectiveness, attendance, and visitor experience of exhibits and programs of DCA entities. Under the management of AMP Concerts, NMC2 will create programs in collaboration with State Historic Sites, DCA Museums and various cultural organizations with the goal of increasing public programs statewide and promoting New Mexico as a destination for arts and culture.
