CHANCHA VIA CIRCUITO
"Aural magical realism" - Resident Advisor
Chancha Via Circuito returns to the capital to deliver a slice of sunshine with their pioneering digital cumbia sound at the iconic Jazz Cafe.
Described as "hypnotic and immersive" by Pitchfork, Chancha's sound offers an intriguing insight into the past and present of South American music. The lurching rhythms of Colombian cumbia, the stridency of reggaeton and even Andean pan pipes are all part of the mix distilled by producer and band leader Pedro Canale, and they are the perfect ingredients for a heaving dancefloor.
Joining Chancha to deliver a riveting night of lush tunes to get you on your feet are Argentinian duo Klik & Frik. Fusing cumbia with dancehall, hip hop, and electronic beats, Klik & Frik's tropical sound blends together perfectly with Chancha's to create the ultimate summer gig.
