CheApalache, a four-man string band, showcases its mix of bluegrass with South American music on Saturday, Nov. 16, in the Dorothy Menker Theater at Moraine Valley Community College, 9000 W. College Parkway.

Tickets for the show, which will start at 7:30 p.m., are $30, $25 for seniors and free for children and students. Those who qualify for free admission must acquire a ticket to reserve a seat.

The group, based in Buenos Aires, features members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States who together created a style they call Latingrass.  Their song list ranges from vivid Latin rhythms to a cappella mountain gospel songs sung in four-part harmony.

Front man Joe Troop, originally from North Carolina, started the group after returning from Japan, Spain, Argentina and other countries, infusing bluegrass tunes with his own experience and mixing folk songs with Latin beats and other influences.
