PSYCHEDELIC AMAZONIAN CUMBIA, JUNGLE SHAMBALA WITH ADDED JUJU
Los Chinches are London's number one exponents of Chicha music. Chicha (named after an Andean corn-based brew) is a hybrid of Colombian Cumbia, psychedelic rock scene in the UK and USA and Peruvian psychedelic Amazonian grooves.
Los Chinches interpretation of Chicha music is very much their own, with backgrounds in many musical styles from rock n' roll to jazz to Latin, fusing London's punk attitude and spirit with timeless Amazonian vibes. Their sound and live performance is a psychedelic burst of energy driven by a fierce frontline of percussion.
Since forming in 2008 they have quickly gained a following with shows at the Barbican, the seminal Arriba La Cumbia night, and at Camden’s Green Note Latin Festival. Also rocking shows at Lovebox, Secret Garden Party and Bestival in 2009.
"A formidable live force" (Jamie Renton - Chilli Fried DJ and journalist)
"You are the best Chincha [sic] band I've ever seen" (Various)
"Judging by the reaction of the audience, it just goes to show that even with the most obscure roots, the entertainment value of this music is ubiquitous." (Jessica Jade - Musicouch)
