LOS WEMBLER’S, de Iquitos

Chicha Pioneers and Originators of El Sonido Amazonico

Los Wembler’s, the legendary band from Iquitos, Peru, will be traveling to the US for the first time. The five Sanchez Brothers who make up the band are Amazonian Cumbia pioneers who helped launch the Chicha explosion of the 1970’s. Los Wembler’s have only rarely left the Amazon and this is a unique opportunity to see them. The brothers are still faithful to their original sound, and haven’t lost a bit of their passion and enthusiasm. They will be performing an original repertoire that spans forty years and includes some of their hits, including Sonidio Amazonico and Danza del Petrolero, which were featured on the Roots of Chicha compilations.

DJ Sabroso, from Lima – the foremost authority on Peruvian Chicha – will be on hand to DJ as will Roots of Chicha producer DJ K Conan.
