Correo Aereo (Air Mail) is an award-winning Latin American Music group. They perform traditional music of Mexico, Venezuela, Argentina and Cuba as well as original compositions. Their repertoire draws from these lineages and their Indigenous American roots and the African, North African and Sephardic diasporas. They honor tradition while embracing organic innovation, resulting in music that is both viscerally ancient and vibrantly contemporary.

They have recorded four CDs, have appeared on many audio compilations, and are featured in film and television, including Universal Pictures ‘The Life Of David Gale’ and FaronWest Production’s star studded music Indie documentary ‘Before the Music Dies’. They have composed and performed the soundtrack for ‘Shipibo Konibo’ by Dutch filmmaker, Willem Malten.

Correo Aereo has performed at festivals, theaters and music venues throughout the U.S. and abroad, including Winnipeg Folk Festival, Austin Music Hall, EMP Seattle, Holland’s prestigious Moondive, an international media project/concert produced by VPRO Television- Radio Amsterdam, Seattle International Children’s Festival and the Knitting Factory, NYC.

Their music has been featured on NPR Radio programs; Latino USA, All Things Considered and on Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now. Correo Aereo was selected winner of the prestigious Austin Music Award for ‘Best Traditional Mexican/Latino Act 2000-2001’.
