World premiere! Tijuana music heroes debut score to silent film classic

San Diego, CA (August 27, 2019) – Bostich + Fussible of the Grammy-nominated Nortec Collective will perform a new suite of electronic music created as a score for a rediscovered 1920’s Mexican silent movie classic, El Tren Fantasma (The Ghost Train).
The film will be preceded by performances from Son Jarocho group Radio Guacamaya and by Tijuana’s trailbrazer DJ, Grenda. Presented by UC San Diego Extension, the event is in collaboration with the Consulate of Mexico and the San Diego Latino Film Festival.
