Rupa & the April Fishes Tour
The tour kicked off on September 19 at the Tamejavi Festival in Fresno and will continue with performances at The Mezzanine in San Francisco, The Mint in Los Angeles and The Bellhouse in Brooklyn among other cities.
Described as "one of the hottest emerging acts" by Time Out, Rupa & the April Fishes mix in elements of Gypsy swing, Colombian cumbia, French chanson and Indian ragas for a sound that effortlessly blurs the boundaries of genre and geography.
este mundo was recorded at Prairie Sun Studios by engineer and sound wizard Oz Fritz, who is best known for his work with Tom Waits (Mule Variations). Guests include rapper Boots Riley of The Coup, along with some of the Bay Area's best musical talents including Tin Hat's trumpeter Ara Anderon and Serbian slap bassist Djordje Stijepovic.
