Tropical Rock'n'Roll / Psychedelic / Amazonic / Cumbia
The kings of tropical Rock'n'Roll. London punks meet Amazonic jungle demons. Peruvian psychedelia and raw 60's garage rock. With added Juju!!
Los Chinches are one of the most exciting and cutting edge acts to emerge from the new Latin scene; a combination of Peruvian percussionists and London bred guitar and keyboard players creating an epic new sound that harnesses the psychedelic twists of Peruvian Cumbia and the Punk and Ska spirit of London. Namely they draw upon the style of Cumbia developed in Peru in the 1960s - known as 'Chicha' – which, along with their unique rocking tropical energy, makes for blistering live performances and an ever-growing reputation.
Their back working in the studio with new releases scheduled for 2016.
