Product Notes

Born and raised in the deep outskirts of Mexico City, the Gama brothers are keeping alive the rich 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 the folk icon challenges it's limits as never before, moving it into the garage/punk world of urban misfits and firmly planting it in the 21st century.

Originally performing alongside their father at local events as kids, they now find themselves at the forefront of the contemporary international cumbia scene with their sonic explorations of the classic marimba. Their absolutely unique blend comes from a typical youthful rebellion, when as teenagers they left behind their upbringing and began to play in various punk, rockabilly and ska bands.

Now they've gone full circle with the return of the marimba on lead, and mixing all of their influences together with an energetic take on the popular instrument, this band of punk brothers from the outskirts of Mexico City will make you dance with their unique style of garage-marimba-punk-cumbia, played on the historic marimba like no one has ever seen before.
