Los Wembler's
Wed, 07/08/2015 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Transformer Station

**Please note that the previously scheduled performers, King Sunny Adé and his African Beats, tour has been canceled due to U.S. visa complications.**

Los Wembler’s, the legendary band from Iquitos, Peru, will be traveling to the US to perform for the first time. The five Sanchez brothers, who make up the band, are Amazonian Cumbia pioneers who helped launch the Chicha explosion of the 1970s. Rarely leaving the Amazon, their performance during Ohio City Stages will serve as a unique opportunity to enjoy the alluring sounds of this group. The brothers are still faithful to their original sound, incorporating electric instruments that generate a certain Anglo exoticism, and haven’t lost a bit of their passion and enthusiasm. Los Wembler’s will be performing an original repertoire that spans forty years and includes some of their hits, including “Sonidio Amazonico” and “Danza del Petrolero,” which were featured on the Roots of Chicha compilations released by Barbès Records.
