Son Rompe Pera
Born and raised deep in the outskirts of Mexico City, the Gama brothers are keeping alive the rich legacy of marimba music with their fresh take on this iconic folk instrument. Their original sound has its roots in youthful rebellion, when as teenagers the brothers left behind their upbringing in marimba and played in punk, rockabilly and ska bands. Now they’ve gone full circle with their sonic explorations of the classic marimba. Son Rompe Pera’s authenticity shines through in energetic live shows that result in a sweaty mess of dancing fans. Currently made up of five musicians, with
conga, percussion, güiro, drums, guitar and bass, Son Rompe Pera creates a full live sound with a strong pan-Latino representation. This garage-cumbia-marimba-punk band never disappoints with their modern interpretation of Mexican, Peruvian, and Colombian classics, as well as their own original material and some surprise covers.
