Café Tacvba is a band from Naucalpan, Mexico. The group gained popularity in the early 1990s, and have had the same musical lineup of Ruben Isaac Albarran Ortega, Emmanuel "Meme" del Real Diaz, Jose Alfredo "Joselo" Rangel Arroyo and Enrique 'Quique' Rangel Arroyo. Previously known as "Alicia Ya No Vive Aqui" (a tribute to Martin Scorsese's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore), the band took its final name from a coffee shop (el Café de Tacuba) located in downtown Mexico City. The cafe, which opened in 1912 and had its heyday in the 1940s and 1950s, was representative of the Pachuco scene at the time, something the band would later acknowledge as an influence. Their musical style covers a wide variety of genres, though it is most commonly labeled as Rock en Espanol. Their music has been heavily influenced by Mexico's indigenous population and folk music traditions, but also by punk and electronic music and other bands on the Mexico City scene. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of their music is Albarran's nasal voice, which, combined with his impressive lung capacity (as demonstrated on "La Ingrata", a homage of norteno music), makes for a very distinctive sound. They sing entirely in Spanish but have a significant Anglophone following regardless. Café Tacuba have released 5 studio albums, and Sino won two Latin Grammys in 2008.
