If Salvador Dali ever made a heist movie, then Mexico’s Troker would have been the soundtrack. Their sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous, the composed and the improvised, where metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk, DJ scratching, and horn lines pulled from both jazz and mariachi traditions of their Guadalajara homeland.

Troker is one of Mexico’s most important cultural exports of instrumental music. In 2016, they were named by Rolling Stone Mexico as one of the “Top 20 Mexican Artists Breaking boundaries.” In early 2017, NPR released a Tiny Desk Concert, ahead of the release of Troker’s Imperfecto album.

Troker has toured across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Latin America, with prominent features at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Hopkins Center for the Arts, and the Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven. They are the only artist in history to perform in two consecutive years at the West Holts Stage at the Glastonbury Festival. They have been described, by All About Jazz, as being “Noisy, chaotic, sprawling, messy, and altogether wonderful.”
