Los Wembler’s de Iquitos

Get ready for a fascinating history lesson about a genre that remains all but unknown in Poland. After all, news from Iquitos, the capital of the Peruvian Amazon, travels slowly — the city is not connected by any roads; the only modes of transportation available are boats and airplanes. It was there, in 1968, that Solomon Sanchez came up with the idea of a band that would combine local rhythms with the sound of the electric guitar, and enlisted his five sons to join him. Their debut track “Cumbia Amazonica” gave its name to an entire genre that has only recently gained worldwide recognition and popularity. At this year’s OFF Festival, we’re drawing straight from the source.
