Two of the finest acts from the UK's current tropical boom join forces alongside promotors Movimientos to present 'Psicho Tropical', a night of jungle wildness and musical talent.
To celebrate the forthcoming release of their debut album "Fongo" Los Chinches, the self-styled kings of tropical rock 'n' roll, play the fabulous Blind Tiger Club in Brighton on the first date of their highly anticipated UK tour. If you know them already, then you'll know not to miss this one, if you don't know about them yet then come and catch their contagious, skilled and highly original Tropical psychedelic cumbia, ska and chicha madness while you still can, because they're about to go global.
In support Brighton's very own anarchic tropicalistas King Lagoon's Flying Swordfish Dance Band will transport you to an exotic land with psychedelic Afro-Latin sounds, costumes, a light show and visuals as well as a smells and effects. Musically drawing on Hi-life, Chicha, west-African 70s styles, maracatu, Toureg music, samba batucada, Neu, Cuban styles, Yma sumac and Congotronics it's a truly unique live experience.
The line up completed by DJ Cal Jader from London's Movimientos crew and Brighton's DJ Eggs Legs spin a intoxicating blend of latin - carnival rhythms and tropical beats to keep you dancing into the small hours.
More about Los Chinches:
Los Chinches are poised to take the world by storm with their epic new sound that harnesses the psychedelic twists of Peruvian Cumbia and the Punk and Ska spirit of London. This Spring will see them bringing their blistering live performances and feverishly addictive melodies to venues around the country. Boasting a crack team of Peruvian percussionists and London guitarists, Los Chinches have blazed a trail across an eclectic array of UK clubs and rock 'n' roll venues since their inception three years ago. They've been part of prestigious UK Latin music festival 'La Linea' at London's Barbican and packed dance floors at established venues like Cargo and Rich Mix. They've rocked high profile festival stages at Glastonbury, Bestival and Womad as well as sharing the bill with Ska Cubano at BT London Live and Ondatropica at Shoreditch Festival in 2012.
With thanks to the support of Arts Council England.
