La Cueca Brava in the Bay Area!!
Guitarist, singer and composer Mario Rojas has recorded several CDs of Chilean traditional songs. Some of them are focused in the cueca, the most popular Chilean folk dance. He has also produced a documentary about the legendary cueca group Los Chileneros.

They perform a style of cueca called the cueca brava, which is a modern version danced and performed mostly in Chile's urban centers. Mario is a singer and composer of songs rooted in the folk tradition whose work has contributed to maintain Chilean traditional music alive, giving a chance to new generations to be in contact with this music.

Performing traditional and contemporary songs of Latin America, Rafael Manriquez, also from Chile, brings us his wonderful voice and guitar. He also plays charango, cuatro, tiple, etc. He moves with his music mostly between Chile and California where he has been living for the past thirty years. Rafael works as a guitar teacher at Berkeley's La Peña Cultural Center.

He has recorded over ten albums, which include songs of Victor Jara, Atahualpa Yupanqui, Violeta Parra and many others. He is an accomplished songwriter who has also used the poetry of Neruda and Mistral as lyrics for his songs. Manriquez was the musical director of the well-known Chilean music ensemble Grupo Raiz. With them he recorded three LPs, today published in CDs by Smithsonian Folkways.
