On this special "Latin Roots" edition of World Cafe, the Grammy-nominated Latin jazz band Monsieur Periné performs live in front of an audience at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. The central three members, including charismatic lead singer Catalina Garcia, joined forces as a Gypsy-jazz group with a love for Parisian guitarist Django Reinhardt. Their music has since evolved, but Reinhardt's influence still remains.

Monsieur Periné's latest album, Caja De Musica, won the band the "Best New Artist" award at the Latin Grammys in November, plus a nomination for "Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album" at the Grammys in February.
