Los Wembler's, Part 2

A concert recording from Cumbia greats Los Wembler's. Originating in Iquitos, Peru in 1968, the band currently comprises five brothers--most of the original lineup save its founder, patriarch Salomon Sanchez--and has drawn a worldwide following with hits like Del Itaya a Italia and Sonido Amazonico. This performance is the second half of a legendary set, performed in 2015 during their first-ever visit to the United States, that draws from a forty-year repertoire rich with Amazonian roots and a global psychedelic soul. Considered the founders of cumbia amazonica, Los Wembler's are innovators in a trippy, danceable genre that mashes up psych-rock and indigenous folk to irresistible effect.

Recorded live in concert at Pioneer Works July 9, 2015.
