Casa Babylon

Casa Babylon is an eclectic music program which aims to look at the various modern and traditional musical movements in the American continent and beyond. The name, Casa Babylon, is taken from Mano Negra's seminal 1994 recording titled "Casa Babylon." The Spanish and French band was one of the first to fuse a variety of world music elements with rock. Their musical fusion had a profound impact on urban youth in Latin American as well as in Mexico. The band also broke language barriers in that they sang in English, Spanish, French and Arabic and really saw themselves as musicians who were part of a large music scene worldwide.
