Biography

THE MOST POPULAR BAND OF CHILE

Chico Trujillo, famous cumbia band from Chile will be on tour on 2012! One of the emblematics bands from America Latina.

Chico Trujillo is Chile's most prominent Cumbia band. They are the soundtrack to every party from Santiago to Valparaiso. They can fill stadiums, have played with legends Los Tres and Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. Their mixture of classic cumbia and hints of rock and ska has assured them audiences from every generation and every walk of life.

Chico Trujillo started as an offshoot of punk/Ska band LaFloripondio in 1999. Thirteen years and five 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 fragemented past with the global influence of alternative culture and merged it all under the pan-latin banner of Cumbia.

The superheroes of cumbia have a name. And that name is Chico Trujillo. Now celebrating its 13th anniversary, the band is at the peak of its powers. They play parties. They play stadiums. They play festivals. They play all over the world. And they cant be stopped. While the outfits contagious, recklessly danceable sound is rich in drive and colorful instrumentation, its not like the cumbia from Argentina or Peru or any other place you can think of. Its not a social expression of proletarian vigor or some regional or ethnic identity. Instead, its a pure cultural phenomenon. Its fans are not the Southern Hemisphere equivalent of folk revivalists; theyre rock and rollers.
