The Plumas National Forest celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month in partnership with Plumas and California Arts Council, by hosting special guest Cambalache at 7:00 PM on September 22, 2016, at the Townhall Theater in Quincy. Cambalache (from a Spanish word that means exchange) is a group of musicians from East Los Angeles who play son jarocho music from Veracruz, Mexico, popular on the Gulf Coast, a region shaped by indigenous and African culture as well as Spanish. Cambalache promotes traditional son jarocho music that draws the audience in to participate in their performances in the spirit of the fandango, a traditional celebration based on music and dance. Vist their website at www.loscambalache.com to learn more about the band.
