Lokandes

WHO Lokandes, fronted by whirldwind musical maestro Kanti Qena, take the roots of traditional Andean music and intertwine them with psychedelic rock; some call them the "Peruvian Pink Floyd", no word of a lie, they do have the live spirit of a 60/70s psych/prog rock band. Their new sound also reflects contemporary genres such as Reggae, Cumbia, Ska, Jazz, Son, Rumba Folk and Afro-Latin. Lokandes unites musicians and instruments from Peru, Bolivia, Spain, France, China, Chile and the UK, and set their music alongside socially conscious lyrics and a super-tight rhythm section.
