Waltzes, boleros and ballads from Chico Trujillo's Front Man
Chico Trujillo’s front man, Macha, has always had a predilection for classic heartbreaking Latin American songs: Peruvian waltzes, boleros, ballads. Songs that stir the soul but still bring a certain nostalgic joy.
For years, Chico Trujillo’s high energy sets often included a stretch of such songs - a part to the set the group had dubbed el "bloque depresivo". For the past few years, Bloque Depresivo has become its own phenomenon: a group fronted by Macha and fully dedicated to make its audience cry and dance at the same time. The group has already attained cult status in Chile and Argentina, where they have been selling out large theaters.
Barbes Records will release its debut album in september of 2017..
