Chico Trujillo

Chico Trujillo, the "Latin Gogol Bordello" is one of the most famous bands in Chile. There they filled stadiums and shared the stage with more than 50,000 spectators in Santiago de Chile last year with the legendary "Los Fabulosos Cadillacs". With their mix of "Nueva Cumbia Chilena" (new Chilean Cumbia) and rock, punk and ska elements, they conquer all stages. No matter whether old or young, poor or rich, the ¡fiesta! Unite all! This is evident at many great festivals such as the Lollapalooza, Roskilde, Paleo, Esperanzah and sold out clubs of many European capital cities.

The group began as a branch of the punk / ska band La Floripondio in 1999 in Valparaiso. Twelve years and five albums later, they have come to symbolize a unique cocktail that has its roots in the cumbia of pre-Pinochet days and has managed to incorporate all aspects of Chilean popular and folkloric culture. They have been able to mix pieces of the past with the global influence of the alternative culture and have fused everything under the Pan American flag of cumbia. The exuberance of the band represents a welcome return to the world of the dance party and night time pleasures by vindicating the popular sounds of traditional fiestas.

In addition to touring extensively in Chile and South America they have conquered the European festival scene with countless shows at the likes of Roskilde and Paleo fuelling their growing reputation as one of the world’s top party bands.
