WPO and AfroTaino are proud to present the legendary kings of Cumbia Amazonica ::: Los Mirlos::: Named after a black bird in their native jungle, Los Mirlos are the uncrowned kings of tropical Peruvian Cumbia, or Cumbia Amazonica. The band came together in Lima during the oil boom of the 70s and created a uniquely new and powerful party music inspired by the Anglophone psychedelic rock and surf music of the time.
The iconic band is well known for the incredible productions of psychedelic Peruvian Cumbia that they have produced since the 70’s. Widely known as the mastermind of the Peruvian-Amazonian Cumbia, they are back to the musical scene to share with the world the Peruvian musical history and the value of it.
Los Mirlos will be starting the party at 8:30, followed by WPO Electro at 10:30. WPO is a new special project of West Philadelphia Orchestra which synthesizes WPO's acoustic horns and percussion with electronic instruments and beats. #AfroTaino2019
