What is a Bachaco?(for those who don't know)
The word Bachaco (BAH-SHA-KO) is the name given to a Leafcutter Ant in Venezuela. The same type of ant is found accross that Amazon Rainforest and in countries such as Panama, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil. The insect is used by Venezuelan indians to create a "picante" (hot sauce). We could say Bachaco is a musical picante!
Miami Herald's Online City Guide "Songs like "Cumbia Pa' La Nena" and "Jamaican Cumbia" are infectious. They immediately make you want to get up and dance"
Miami New Times "they do not shy away from social issues. A good example of that is the Norteño-spiced reggae tune "El Imigrante," … "Apart from the fact that they are highly proficient musicians, the most noticeable thing about the bandmates is their excellent chemistry. The singers' three-part harmonies are tight — even when performed live — and the two-guitar groove seamlessly interacts with the brass and rhythm sections."
