Behind the Beat: Los Chechos

800 Langdon St.
Madison, WI 53706
OVERVIEW

Los Chechos honors danceable grooves and songs from Latin America in their own Midwestern way. They playfully recreate pop classics from cumbia, ska, reggae and rock, with an emphasis on improvisation. Language is no barrier, as Ecuadorian frontman Alejandro Punbra sings in Spanish, English, Portuguese, French, and Quechua. Backing him are some of Madison's musical finest, featuring members of Immigre, Panchromatic Steel, Samba Novistas, and the Big Payback.
