New video for the bluegrass song, “The Dreamer,” features the story of Moisés Serrano, an openly undocumented and queer DACA recipient from North Carolina


COLUMBUS, Oct. 31, 2019: Che Apalache, a bluegrass band featuring three powerhouse Latin American musicians from Buenos Aires, Argentina and North Carolina native, Joe Trooprecently released a music video for their latest  single “The Dreamer,” which appears on their new album, “Rearrange My Heart,” produced by famed banjo player and cross-genre trailblazer Béla Fleck

Moisés Serrano


The music video features the story of Moisés Serrano, an openly undocumented and queer DACA recipient and community leader from North Carolina. Since coming out as undocumented in 2010, Serrano has relentlessly pursued equality for his community through the sharing of his story. Moisés’ advocacy has been filmed in the feature length documentary, Forbidden: Undocumented & Queer in Rural America and he also co-wrote the script for “The Dreamer” music video.


The following is a statement by Matt Hildreth, Executive Director of RuralOrganizing.org.

“Che Apalache is bluegrass band that looks more like the true rural America than the simple cliches too often portrayed in the media. Our small towns and rural communities are so lucky to have leaders like Moisés who are fighting every day for their hometowns. “The Dreamer” represents the stories of so many rural people today. A third of new rural residents in the United States today were born in another country.”


Che Apalache will perform at the RuralOrganizing.org launch party on November 11, 2019 in Sioux Center, Iowa.
