Multiflora Productions and Leon City Sounds Present a tropical underground fiesta featuring Dos Santos
and La Chicha de tu Madre
at Dupont Underground!
La Chicha de tu Madre is an Amazonian Cumbia/Chicha band based in Washington, D.C. Members are Daniel Riggs on vocals, electric guitar and keyboard; César Mazat on vocals and electric guitar, Gunnar Poppe on bass guitar, Xavier Bure on timbales and Oliver Contreras on the congas and bongos. Chicha, also called Psychedelic Cumbia, Cumbia amazónica or Jungle Cumbia («Cumbia de la selva»), was created in the Amazonian region of Perú in the late 60's. The style combined the saturated psychedelic guitar and organ sounds of the era with the cumbia rhythm and the traditional Andean melodies and chord progressions of the region.
Dos Santos is a quintet based in Chicago. Their elasticity & consistency in live performance and their recorded output have garnered them wide attention as one of the city’s most potent, impactful performers. Collectively raised through the pedagogy of American popular and traditional Latin music, their future-minded sound gestures forward into an idealized new progressive American music, as rooted in Chicago as it is communicable with the world.
$12 advance $15 at the door.
