Named after a style of folk music that originated in the Nineteenth Century along the U.S.-Mexico border, Conjunto honors the genre's early improv spirit—fusing jazz, rock, and blues with Afro-Cuban percussion instrumentation. Conjunto performs Fridays, March 4 & March 18, 2005, at 9:30 pm at the Jacaranda—3608 West 26th Street in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. Featured Song: “Consejera,” Live in Little Village (Amadeo Records, 2002)
