“Ribot played with the wasp-like sting of the young, Bluesbreakers-era Eric Clapton, Hidalgo replying with legato lines rich in lyricism. At other times they reversed these roles or mixed them up… a profoundly memorable evening.” —The Australian
A musical excursion that crosses borders between cultures, styles, and genres, West Coast meets East Coast, real meets prosthetic, and guitar meets guitar in a rocking post-roots pan-Latin rave-up. One evening, two masters: together they forge a unique partnership exploring form and place, tradition and innovation. David Hidalgo is the driving vocal and guitar force of East LA’s Los Lobos and the more experimental Latin Playboys, the former of which took border-hopping cultural collisions onto the world stage with a series of chart-topping songs and albums. Marc Ribot (ex Tom Waits, ex Lounge Lizards, and just plain excellent guitarist) is also the leader of downtown New York’s Prosthetic Cubans (Los Cubanos Postizos), power rock trio Ceramic Dog, and frequent collaborator with John Zorn.
