Chico Trujillo on Wednesday 13th November 2019
Live at EartH, Hackney
Plus Special Guests
Chico Trujillo is much more than Chile’s most prominent cumbia band. They provide the soundtrack to every party from Santiago to Valparaiso and their mixture of classic cumbia seasoned with rock and ska has assured them audiences from every generation and every walk of life throughout South America. The band’s high energy live shows, and occasional balkanic brass lines have had some drawing comparisons with Gogol Bordello.
Chico Trujillo began as an offshoot of punk/ska band La Floripondio in 1999. Sixteen years and seven albums later, the offshoot has become a uniquely Chilean cocktail appreciated by a broad range of palates. With a sound rooted in the cumbias of the pre-Pinochet days yet incorporating every aspect of Chile’s popular culture, Chico Trujillo has meshed Chile’s fragmented musical past with the global influence of alternative culture and merged it all under the pan-Latin banner of Cumbia.
