In a nutshell

The sensational Chico Trujillo - one of Chile’s most legendary groups, famed for their incendiary and party-rocking live shows

Go on...

The group began as a branch of the punk / ska band La Floripondio in 1999 in Valparaiso. Twelve years and five albums later, they have come to symbolize a unique cocktail that has its roots in the cumbia of pre-Pinochet days and has managed to incorporate all aspects of Chilean popular culture. They have been able to mix pieces of the past with the global influence of the alternative culture and have fused everything under the Pan American flag of cumbia. The exuberance of the band represents a welcome return to the world of the dance party and night time pleasures.

In addition to touring extensively in Chile and South America they have conquered the European festival scene with countless shows at the likes of Roskilde and Paleo fuelling their growing reputation as one of the worlds best party bands.

What to Expect

A live performance provided the band Chico Tujillo as well as Movimientos DJs and guests

Who's Involved

Chico Trujillo, the 'Latin Gogol Bordello' is one of the most famous bands in Chile. There they filled stadiums and shared the stage with more than 50,000 spectators in Santiago de Chile last year with the legendary Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. With their mix of Nueva Cumbia Chilena (new Chilean Cumbia) and rock, punk and ska elements, they conquer all stages. No matter whether old or young, poor or rich, the ¡fiesta! Unite all! This is evident at many great festivals such as the Lollapalooza, Roskilde, Paleo, Esperanzah and sold out clubs of European capital cities.

Movimientos is London’s most prolific latin music and events organisation. This year alone they have hosted over 30 events in London, programming a multitude of festival stages as well as continuing to release UK based Latin acts music via their Movimientos Records imprint.
