When North Carolina native Joe Troop moved to Argentina in 2010, the multi-talented musician carved out a niche in the local scene by teaching bluegrass and old-time music. Eventually Troop, along with a few of his quick-picking students, formed Che Apalache, and drawing on various musical styles from Argentina, Mexico, and the United States, recorded Latingrass, the group’s debut album. In 2017, Che Apalache toured the U.S., where it  won first place in the Neo-Traditional band competition at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival.
