Description

Los Revolunaticos are exited to present their most recent project where they'll be paying tribute to legendary bands such as Los Prisioneros, Soda Stereo, GIT and Virus. Los Revolunaticos is lead by Markito Rossi and Kekoski Viran and will be joined by many more Melbourne musicians. Join us at the Night Cat on June 3rd for an epic night of song and dance "hasta que pase el temblor" (to quote memorable lyrics from genius Cerati)

Finding the true origen of Latin rock is complex to say the least. We could start though by saying that attempts have been made since the 50's in various parts of Latin America with a variety of sounds resulting from the fusion of rock and roll with the local 'flavours'. The 60's was a good example of this with Chilean alternative bands like Illapu, inti illimani and Los Jaivas to name a few, still touring worldwide. During the late 70's there was a resurgence of electronic music particularly rock in spanish driven by heavy restrictions on english music in Argentina. Given these conditions, young Argentinians began experimenting with english sounds and Spanish lyrics. The acceptance was more or less immediate, however, two main branches developed from this exercise: the solid rock sound and the more mellow synth bases tunes developing in England at the time.

This is how epic bands such as Soda Stereo were born. The stage was set then for others to follow. Chile put its name on the map once again with a band called Los Prisioneros, a socially driven punk rock band originated in the working class suburbs of Santiago. And the rest as they say is history. Mexico has helped develop many of the south and latinamerican bands in general, whichever their tendencies are, to great success and exposure in North America and Europe.
