American psych and Columbian cumbia are two very distinctive genres of music, and who knew they would sizzle so well together? In this case, Money Chicha has an excellent recipe for melding the two, while adding generous shots of funk, which all fuels the fire on their latest release, Echo en México. Turn up the fuzz, reverb y la percusión pesada. Bam!
Don’t miss out on a fantastic show featuring Money Chicha and Chicago-based pan-Latin band Dos Santos Antibeat Orquestra tonight at the Swan Dive, 615 Red River. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the music starts at 10 p.m. So recommended.
