Axelrad Concert Series presents: Money Chicha + Gio Chamba for a free concert you won't want to miss!
Money Chicha is an Austin, Texas based group featuring members of the Grammy-award winning Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma and its offshoot funk outfit Brownout which performs a fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched and percussion-heavy style of music inspired by the sounds of Peru and Colombia in the 60s and 70s. This style of music, sometimes called “chicha” music, is known for its infectious Latin beat, its psychedelic, surf guitar pyrotechnics and its melodies influenced by the indigenous culture of the Andes mountains.
Supporting Act: Gio Chamba is a musical duo from Houston Texas, consisting of guitarist & singer G...iovanny Alejandro and percussionist Coffee Guzman. Their live shows are as dynamic as their music in that they span many genres and moods. They are musical chameleons, blending in and connecting effortlessly with music fans of all kinds.
DJ Jean-Paul Tiblier will round out the evening!
