“Café Tacvba have cracked the code: Over the course of a 25-year recording career, they have somehow remained thrillingly mutable as other rock bands broke up, burned out, got stale or settled into an old hits routine.
In May, the revered Mexican group released Jei Beibi, their first album as an independent act after a long period of affiliation with Universal Music Mexico. This fall, they’re supporting the record by embarking on their biggest ever tour of the U.S.; for good measure, the band will end the trip with their first ever live collaboration with an orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Billboard spoke with Emmanuel “Meme” del Real, who handles keyboards, among other duties, about Café Tacvba’s new status as an indie act and the challenges of constant reinvention.”
