LA CHAMBA

In the working-class communities of Latinx America, the word “Chamba” can be heard on any bustling street corner. La “Chamba” literally means “work,” and is a word used to describe one’s hustle. La Chamba’s humble origins began in a garage in South Los Angeles, with hard-working music that lured eager ears to their fresh West Coastal sound, known as “Chicha Angelina.”

La Chamba transports the textures of 60’s & 70’s Amazonian Peruvian Surf-Pop “Chicha”, to the present-day reality of life in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. Their world is infused with Psychedelic Guitars, Lush Organs & Sweaty Synths, over a Hypnotic, heavy-grooving dance floor of fiery Afro-Latin rhythms, reminiscent of L.A’s high-energy swagger & charm! Their signature “Chamba” tone pays homage to Peru’s rich vintage “Chicha” spirit, with a sonic stamp that is distinctly Angeleno!

La Chamba’s melodic landscape of Amazonian Surf Pop, Classic Psych-Rock, Los Angeles G-funk & deeply rooted Afro-Latin rhythms (spiced with Tropical nostalgia), known as “Chicha Los Angeles Style,” or simply put “Chicha Angelina,” encourages folks to nod their heads, shake their hips, break down barriers, let-loose and release their grind on the dance floor!

They’ve come a long way since their modest beginnings as a garage jam-band in South L.A! Since its inception, La Chamba has carved a distinctive mark on the musical terrain of Los Angeles, resonating as a musical force that “Owns the Streets of L.A!” (-According to Mitú). They’ve been featured in numerous publications, blogs and international radio stations including NPR, KCRW, Barrio Gold Records (Japan), Radio Krimi (France), Radio Berlin (Germany), Ibero FM (Mexico), Remezcla, PBS’s Dublab, L.A. Record, KCRW, and LA WEEKLY! They’ve shared the stage with Peruvian Chicha giants Los Mirlos, Cumbia legend Celso Piña, Mexican icons Los Freddys, Colombia’s Famous Rockers Aterciopelados, Grammy Award Winners La Santa Cecilia & Quetzal, Nigeria’s Mdou Moctar, L.A’s very own Ozomatli, Las Cafeteras & Chicano Batman to name a few!
