La Chamba fuses Psychedelic Electric Guitar & Organs with heavy Afro-Latin rhythms (such as cumbia, salsa, timba, rumba) to create a working-class sound inspired by 60’s & 70’s psychedelic Peruvian Surf-Pop known as “Chicha”.
With roots in East and South Central Los Angeles, “Chamba” literally means “work,” and is a word used throughout the barrios of Latin America to describe your hustle. Their sound pays homage to the vintage melodies and hard-hitting dance grooves of Peruvian Chicha music, popular among the working-classes of Lima and the Amazon. La Chamba encourages folks to let-loose and release their grind on the dance floor!
