La Cumbia Chicharra is the groove, the dancing, the party and the passion. An elevated trance music travelling from South America to Marseilles, mixed with an explosive metal section.


La Chicharra was born in 2002 next to the Mediterranean sea, because of the love for this Colombian rhythm that is la Cumbia. Arrived from different countries of South America and Europe, this eleven musicians celebrates on stage the ritual of la Cumbia: they play, they dance and they make people move. La Chicharra is la cumbia from Marseilles, city where they met each others, and where they live today. For nine years and more than 250 shows, LA CUMBIA CHICHARRA have been playing this lovely music all over the world and still on the road, ready to party !
