Son Rompe Pera

Born and raised in Naucalpan in the deep outskirts of Mexico City, brothers Jesús Ángel “Kacho” Gama and Alan “Mongo” Gamaare keeping alive the legacy of marimba music running through their family with their latest project, Son Rompe Pera. While firmly rooted in the tradition of this historic instrument, their fresh take on this folk icon challenges its limits as never before, moving it into the garage/punk world of urban misfits and firmly planting it in the 21st century. Their absolute unique blend comes from a typical youthful rebellion, when as teenagers they left behind their upbringing on the marimba and began to play in various punk, rockabilly and ska bands. The contrast of the traditional marimba with their youthful attitude and street sense connects the audience to the past while they dance into the future.
