Multiflora Fest Presents Los Wembler's de Iquitos at Tropicalia
The release of the Roots of Chicha, in 2007, re-introduced the world to Peruvian Psychedelic cumbia and Chicha, a genre until then confined to the poorer neighborhoods of Lima and the Amazon. Chichas particular blend of psych rock, surf, Afro-Latin rhythms and indigenous melodies proved to be particularly appealing  to many, especially in South America, it became the missing link between Rock and Tropical Latin music.

The five Sanchez brothers grew up in the Amazonian city of Iquitos -where they still live - and were some of the first to electrify their local dance rhythms. They were responsible for some of the first hits of the genre - including the iconic Sonido Amazonico and Danza del Petrolero, two titles later covered by Los Mirlos. Los Wember's were an essential part of both volumes of The Roots of Chicha and there couldnt be a more appropriate band to celebrate the revival of Chicha and Psychedelic Cumbia.

For the past thirty years, Los Wemblers had mostly remained in the Amazonian city of Iquitos, playing local functions, but there has been a regain of interest for the band. They have collaborated with Peruvian electro cumbia group Dengue Dengue Dengue, have been covered by Los Mirlos, Chicha Libre, Firewater and others, and inspired countless new bands.

Los Wemblers have recorded a brand new EP: Ikaro del Amor (produced by Chicha Libres and Roots of Chicha producer Olivier Conan) and will be embarking on an international tour starting this summer. The groups sound is more psychedelic and groove-heavy 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.
