They are most known for incinerating dance floors with the heavy dance floor artillery of South Asia, but the duo scour the globe for any hard-hitting music that combines local music traditions with window-rattling production. Anjali and The Kid regularly perform at festivals including five sets at the Sasquatch! Music Festival tenth anniversary where they headlined the dance tent opening night. They have performed at festivals such as Decibel, MusicfestNW, PICA's TBA Festival, Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration, Beloved, What The Festival, Photosynthesis, Soul'd Out Music Festival, Portland State of Mind, Fairytale Music Festival, Kaleidoscope, Vancouver Queer Film Festival & Portland International Film Festival to name a few.
In the deep vein filled tropical jungles of each our hearts lies the frenetic rhythm of Cumbia, music of the Southern American Hemisphere that has roots cast centuries deep and continents wide. Orquestra Pacifico Tropical have in their brief explosive tenure taken the addictive rhythms of Cumbia and accomplished what musicians across continents and generations have done, bringing crowds in the clubs and forests of the Pacific Northwest into a blistering dance frenzy. Live is where you will hear the ecstatic thump, rumble and sheer brilliance of experiencing the racing rhythms of Coastal Colombia side by side with the psychedelic guitar exploration of the the Peruvian rainforest. Always respecting those who came and innovated before them while forging their own uniquely Portland stamp on the music. Eleven friends brought together in the spirit of capturing and breathing new life into varieties of Cumbia with an arsenal of percussion, woodwinds, horns and guitars.
Orquestra Pacifico Tropical’s wall of sound is dedicated to expanding the music of Central and South America to the people and dance floors of the Pacific Northwest.
