Los Wembler's de Iquitos
Los Wembler’s, the legendary band from Iquitos, the capital of the Amazon in Peru, is getting ready to tour internationally. The five Sanchez Brothers who make up the band are Amazonian Cumbia pioneers who played an essential part in launching the Chicha explosion of the 1970’s. The band, which wrote and recorded the classics “Sonido Amazonico” and “La danza del Petrolero” was anthologized on the Roots of Chicha compilations and has been covered by bands as varied as Los Mirlos, Chicha Libre and Firewater and now with the most famous DJ Electro Tropical, we also find their classic albums in the famous 'Roots of Chicha'. There has finally been a regain of interest for the band that first created what came to be known as Psychedelic cumbia. In 2017, the band released their first new recording since the early 80’s (Ikaro del Amor, Barbès Records) and toured the US, Mexico and Europe. Collaborations with the likes of Eblis Alvarez of Meridian Brothers, or Dengue Dengue Dengue have given them a new visibility that allows them to follow their experimental instincts. The group’s sound is more vibrant than ever. This is not a nostalgia act cashing in on newfound interest in its history, but a cutting edge group that has finally found a worldwide audience that understands its music.
