Los Chinches

Los Chinches are at the cutting edge of London's Latin cumbia revival scene.

A combination of Peruvian percussionists and London bred guitar and keyboard players have created an epic new sound, with quirky lyrics in both English and Spanish, harnessing psychedelic twists of Peruvian cumbia and chicha rhythms with the Punk and Ska spirit of London.

The band's unique rocking tropical energy makes for blistering live performances - festival appearances have included include London's La Linea, Glastonbury, The Big Chill and WOMAD.

Los Chinches' debut album Fongo earned them a 4 star review in The Guardian and features all new songs by Marty Shtrubel, Matthew Taylor and band leader Gareth Finnegan.

Carthage Music administers the Los Chinches repertoire worldwide.
