Jump aboard the Kombi A-Train for an exhilarating evening of Chicha! 

Originating deep in the Peruvian jungle and named for the Inca’s favourite liquor, Chicha is dance music inspired by Colombian cumbias, Andean melodies and Cuban Guajiras; fused with the psychedelic sounds of surf guitars, wah-wah pedals, farsifa organs and Moog synthesisers! 

Starting out in the Amazon in the late 60’s, Chicha exploded into Lima where it expanded with western influences, drawing surf rock, Andean folklore and Creole music further into the sound. It is at once raw and sophisticated – and until the release of “The Roots of Chicha”, a compilation of Amazonic Cumbia and Chicha by the American Barbès Records on 2007, it had never been released outside of Peru!

Tonight, Kombi-A Train, led by Miguel de la Mata (Peru), introduce Psychedelic Cumbia to Australia; that way giving back to the world what the world did for Chicha back in the 60’s!

  • Guitars & Vocals: Miguel de la Mata
  • Drums: Francisco Munoz
