Nortec Collective

NORTEC COLLECTIVE

Saturday, May 7, 2011, 8:00 p.m.

Comprised of a talented team of producers who fuse traditional Mexican music with contemporary electronica, the Nortec Collective is one of the hottest musical groups to come out of Mexico in recent years. Based primarily in Tijuana, Mexico, the Nortec Collective's headlining artists Bostich & Fussible build musical bridges where others build walls. An energetic blend of Norteño and techno, words from which they draw their name, the Nortec Collective's musical mastery is magical.
