Mezrab is very proud to host the 20th birthday & Mambo Mundial album release party of “the Kings of Cumbia”:
Two nights they will set Mezrab on fire!
Prepare yourself for a sensational night of fiery Cumbia, Rock and Ska. Because Chile’s legendary party band Chico Trujillo is coming to Amsterdam!
Chico Trujillo started as an offshoot of Punk/Ska band La Floripondio in 1999. Fifteen years and six albums later, the offshoot has come to symbolize a uniquely Chilean cocktail. One that is rooted in the cumbias of the pre-Pinochet days and manages to incorporate every aspect of Chile’s popular culture. They have meshed bits and pieces of Chile’s fragmented past with the global influence of alternative culture and merged it all under the pan-latin banner of Cumbia.
Now with their latest album Mambo Munidal, the group have now come in full circle. 11 tracks of non-stop hits, from psychedelic to folk to hip-hop to boleros, but always based on what they’re best known for: cuuuuuuummmmbiaaaaaa!
Doors open: 20.30, Show: 21.30
