One of the main cultivators of the psychadelic cumbia sound of the ‘60s + 70’s, legendary Peruvian group Los Wembler’s de Iquitos come to Band on the Wall!

Songs like ‘Sonido Amazonico’ and ‘Danza del Petrolero’ went on to become huge cumbia hits and were later covered by Los Mirlos.

The brothers/band were born and raised in Inquitos – the largest isolated city in the world. It is there they were delved into chicha music, a sound which was confined to small areas of the Amazon and Lima. Now in 2024 the group are back on the road, bringing this near-forgotten genre back to stages to re-introduce the world to chica music.
