Los Chinches in Session

Lopa Kothari presents new music from around the world and a studio session with Peruvian/London band Los Chinches.

Lopa Kothari with new tracks from across the globe, and a studio session with Peruvian Londoners Los Chinches.

Veterans of WOMAD and Glastonbury, Los Chinches create a blend of Peruvian percussion with London-inspired punk and ska. At their heart is the psychedelic style known as chicha music, which flourished in Peru in the 60s and 70s, named after a strong Andean brew.
