They’ll play together at an album release show at Joe’s Pub on May 10.

“Ríos de Norte y Sur” features a mix of traditional son jarocho tunes and new songs by Zenen Zeferino. All the tracks in ways speak to the band's experience as immigrants in the US and to the nostalgia and love they have for our roots and origins. They speak about the bodies of water that unite New York and Veracruz, and that know no borders, walls or frontiers.

NPR has praised Radio Jarocho’s “edgy attitude.” The New York Daily News’ Jim Farber said, “This New York-based band mine flinty traditional Mexican jarocho music, then fracture it through a modern sensibility of their own.”
