Manzana Tropical

Full fat Peruvian Cumbia with a twist of tribal Amazonian rhythms
Manzana Tropical is an exciting Latin act from London playing the form of Peruvian Cumbia known as Chicha. Having been brought up immersed in London’s thriving Latin American musical community young musicians Manuy and Cleyder Figueroa began the project inspired by the heritage of their motherland in Peru.

Their music incorporates a homage to classic Peruvian acts including Grupo Nectar, Los Pakines and Chacalon as well as Latin legends such as Santana combined with a strong London sensibility. Manzana’s live set comprises some re-interpretations of Chicha classics and some original songs.

With this concept he set himself as one of the pioneers that brought these sounds to the club scene all over the country.

Today he is one of the most active DJs and promoters of the Balkan-Cumbia scene in Europe. A tireless traveler, he has already traveled half the world carrying this Latin-Balkan sound that characterizes his set and on the dance floor he is a master of making you move.
