Perotá Chingó

Argentinian band Perotá Chingó is a project in constant transformation that today embarks on a new musical and conceptual chapter. Now the band is extending the boundaries of its acoustic style, interweaving folklore, the ancestral evocation of voices and the technological power of electronic beats. Having been touring the world for the best part of the last decade, they now bring their full live show to London’s Rich Mix for their UK debut.
