Debut album 'Fongo' out 1 April 2013 on Movimientos Records
UK distributor: Proper Music Distribution
Chinches – the band that began as a sweet dream in a jungle hut - will
release their long-awaited debut album Fongo on 1 April. Drawing upon
the retro style of Chicha from 1960s Peru, Los Chinches' epic new sound
harnesses the psychedelic twists of Peruvian Cumbia as well as the Punk
and Ska spirit of London. This, along with their rocking tropical
energy, makes for blistering live performances interlaced with
feverishly addictive melodies. Their sound stays faithful to the
original bands from the era, such as Juaneco y Su Combo and Los Mirlos,
whilst taking influences from 60s garage rock and surf guitar and
bringing it bang up-to-date with a distinctly London attitude.
Movimientos is thrilled to announce the Los Chinches UK Tour dates. Los Chinches will be playing prestigious venues across the UK in March - with more dates to follow in May - bringing their killer blend of original tropical-psychedelic Cumbia, Ska and Chicha from Peru to audiences in Brighton, Nottingham, Cardiff, Bristol and more. The tour coincides with the March release of their new album FONGO on Movimientos Records, which is set to be a trailblazer on the Global music scene. With thanks to the support of Arts Council England.
