    Cumbia has found its way from its birthplace in Colombia across mountain ranges, oceans and rainforests via vinyl and radio waves, taking root wherever it lands to blossom into something new and beautiful. On the coasts of Peru, cumbia mixed with highland huayno and American surf rock to birth a psychedelic cumbia known as chicha. Take a riverboat for days into the Amazon and you’ll get to Iquitos, Peru, where chicha has taken a unique form since the ’60s. It’s known as el sonido Amazonico and among its pioneers are Los Wembler’s de Iquitos, a family band who’ve been playing for 49 years straight. The Sanchez brothers who are Los Wembler’s recently came to New York City on Oct. 16 for the second time, following a U.S. debut in 2015. Both shows took place at the spacious Pioneer Works in Brooklyn to adoring crowds. At this 2017 performance, one of our local favorites, Combo Chimbita, opened for Los Wembler’s with their unstoppable, tropical futurist take on Colombian cumbia. All photos by Sebastian Bouknight.

    Singer Carolina Oliveros leads Chimbita through their humid forest of sound with her volatile voice. She sings with incredible power, jumping from high, witchy wails to thick, aggressive punches and sonorous melodies.

    The band is supremely tight–boosted by a demanding concert schedule in recent months–hitting the transitions from spacey psychedelia to heavy cumbia steps with precision. On keyboards is bassist and keyboardist Prince of Queens, on guitar Niño Lento and on drums Dilemastronauta, all playing their parts with power. Niño Lento’s crisp, cyclical guitar vamps are particularly hypnotic. If you get a chance to see this crew live (and there are many in NYC), don’t miss it.

    Chimbita’s tropical futurism takes form as melty, ponderous cumbia psychedelia and thunderous, screeching jams that verge on metal or heavy punk rock. To accompany these sounds, they were backed with trippy, kaleidoscopic projections that took them from the Yucatán to outer space.

    After Combo Chimbita, Los Wembler’s de Iquitos took the stage. This band has unbeatably good vibes and indefatigable energy, even after nearly 50 years in the game–their love for the music has not faded one bit.

    The brothers and cousins churned out a seemingly unending flow of chicha for several hours, creating a scene that felt more like a wedding or party at a bar than a concert. The first half of the set was largely made of distinct songs with a clear start and finish, including old-school hits like “Danza de Petrolero” and “Cariñito.” The second half melted into a undying medley of every song they have, including repeats of songs from the first half in a wonderfully genuine way. The crowd, though dancing hard throughout, began to spread out through the large space and dance freely instead of packing tight close to the stage, a shift that felt just right.

    Their sound is unmistakable, driven by guïro, simple, two-stepping bass lines, and a combination of spacious rhythm guitar and twangy, psychedelic guitar riffs. Elmer Alberto Sánchez Casanova, who leads on guitar, nonchalantly shreds in the corner as his ebullient brother Ronald Jair Sanchez Casanova beams and sings, shouting, “Arriba Peru!”

    While there were some lulls in the vibrancy of the music, all but a few of the songs were brilliant and joyful and supremely danceable. Keep your ears and eyes out for more Los Wembler’s shows to come!

    The Remedy Club are a young, fresh-faced married couple from Ireland, who look across The Atlantic to Nashville for their musical inspiration. They have tidy minds. This album is called Lovers, Legends & Lost Causes because some songs are about lovers (I Miss You, This Is Love, Last Song) others are tributes to legends (Tom Waits Up, Listening To Hank Williams, Django) and a third group are about lost causes (Get Away With It, Bottom Of The Hill).

    KJ McEvoy is a classy guitarist, nimble and poised, never needing to break into a sweat. He’s at his best when he’s out of his Country comfort zone. For example, his Djangoesque lines on, erm, Django are superb. He has a good voice, too. Check out the yodelling on Listening To Hank Williams. However, it’s his wife, Aileen Mythen, that is the main vocal attraction. She has one of those butter-wouldn’t-melt, innocent voices that belies an ancient soul, kind of a cross between Shirley Temple and Etta James, soothing and disturbing at the same time. They blend together well, long nights practising in hotel bedrooms making them very sensitive to each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They share the limelight and allow each other to take it without rancour.

    Lovers, Legends & Lost Causes is essentially Country music, very impressively delivered by an exceptionally talented couple. There is a problem, though. These two have chemistry, a very positive type of chemistry. The woeful tales of lost love, heavy drinking and disappointment don’t fool anyone. These two are loving every minute and sound really happy together.
