In the mist of this genre from Perù invading Los Angeles,  5 musicians gather with a legendary producer to create and rehearse the sounds from a band that will never be forgotten.  The sound was a revolutionary one for the people in its territory.  Comas, Lima was the mecca of 90% of the bands creating Chicha or Cumbia Psycodelica.  Jose Luis Carballo is not just another member of this great community.  He is one of the “pillars” of this genre.  Who helped shaped and create a unique sound along with professionalism in every way and movement.

You will have the honor to meet the legend himself on Oct 7th along with the talented guys from LA CHAMBA, who are sealing their stamp as one of the most important bands out of LA bringing a genre of music new to the ears of Angelinos and North Californians… for now!

Thanks for reading.

Legendary Chicha producer (PERU)

Another beautiful night with LA CHAMBA and the people from Los Angeles.  The clock marked 8:30pm and maestro Josè Luis Carballo standing outside La Fonda (our venue) with his entourage of 3 guest.  We reached out and welcomed him to the restaurant and made sure he had the best seat for the night. We talked for about an hr. doing a few interviews for the Peruvian news paper El Commercio, as we talk with Jose Luis, the people started to arrive… The chicha jug was pouring down on to cups… Dj Fresko & Rich Spirit holding it down with the Colombian Cumbias and Salsa, as well as hosting the night on the mic… We encounter a few new faces / fans that came just to experience the sounds of La Chamba.  It was a great night, not too cold at all… just right… and the chicha kept pouring down…
