More about Rojos Calientes....
They call their music “Latin Grass.” It's a mixture of bluegrass, Latin flavor and Spanish lyrics. The quick beats and ever-evolving rhythms are also influenced by everything from rock and jazz, swing and folk, Americana, flamenco, gypsy jazz and classical music. A Summit Daily News article explains more.....
