Gaucho sound
After that, gauchos from Sombrero Luminoso will ake their rock cucaracha to the stage, with their lyrics in “portunhol”. Created in 2000, Sombrero Luminoso broaches love with a tenuous humour, giving the lyrics a strong latin characteristic. The band shows in its works influences by Ramones, Bob Dylan, Beatles, Charly Garcia, among others. The presentation will be 20 minutes long. - World Social Forum

Beginning of 2000. In the south of (South) América, SOMBRERO LUMINOSO, a Latin World Music band, bursts onto the musical scene, singing a mix of Portuguese and Spanish – the “Portunish” – a dialect which is spoken in the borders of Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Combining bolero, rock, ‘milonga’ (typical southern Brazilian music) and reggae in an irreverent concert, Sombrero Luminoso puts the South American Latin-like Pop music on display. They define their music as the “Paraguayan-type rock music”: as legitimate as the hawkers’ goods along the Uruguay River. Furtively declared. Remarkably predictable. Intelligently ignorant. Peacefully desperate. Coldly visceral.
