Chico Trujillo
Chico Trujillo
Chico Trujillo is Chile's most prominent Cumbia band. They are the soundtrack to every party from Santiago to Valparaiso. They can fill stadiums, have played with legends Los Tres and Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. Their mixture of classic cumbia and hints of rock and ska has assured them audiences from every generation and every walk of life.
These nine musicians originally came together in Chico Trujillo as a side project of a ska band called La Floripondio. Listening to Chico de Oro, its latest album and debut release on Barbès Records (out May 11, 2010), you might grasp how cumbia is a crossroads. In one direction, it allows the performers to create a link with the past: the Chile before Pinochet's rule, when fiestas gave way to protest. If the Junta's rise to power in 1973 signaled a loss of innocence, the band's exuberance signifies a welcome return to the ludic world of dance parties and nocturnal pleasures.
La Misa Negra
La Misa Negra
La Misa Negra is an 8-piece band from Oakland, CA that plays a unique blend of 1950's and 60's style Cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Colombian dance music. Powered by horn and accordion-driven riffs, a raucous rhythm section and a vintage Colombian sound, La Misa Negra delivers a killer show that explodes with infectious dance grooves and punk rock energy. Since their live debut in the fall of 2011, La Misa Negra has toured extensively throughout California, playing shows and festivals with Celso Piña, Nortec Collective, La Santa Cecilia, Chico Trujillo, Sergent Garcia, Very Be Careful, Souls of Mischief, Jarabe de Palo, Meshell Ndegeocello, and many others. On the strength of their unique sound and wild shows, La Misa Negra has quickly gained a reputation as one of the Bay Area's most exciting live bands and, in the process, is building a diverse fan base that transcends musical, cultural and generational divides.
