Orquesta K'Che––Going Beyond Fusion
Orquesta K'Che, a Latin dance band based in North Carolna's Triangle region, is the brainchild of Puerto Rican musician Billy Marrero. At age six, the band leader and percussionist began a long musical journey that would eventually carry him to Holly Springs, North Carolina. In the years since, he was built a band of musicians from all over the U.S. and Latin America, going beyond the concept of fusion to create a new sound altogether that has something to say about ethnicity, national identity, and migration.
