Coming up on October 28th! Latin Reggae vibes with Gondwana and Fayuca!
Gondwana — When The Police debuted at the Viña del Mar Festival (February 1982), in a small and combative town in the north of Santiago, La Pincoya, a young Locks Labbe surprised and influenced by that performance made the decision that would change the fate of his Life and that of many: to found a band, that band reach the same stage and play the bass. All these wishes were fulfilled: in 1987 he founded GONDWANA, the first reggae group in Chile and one of the first in South America. Over time, he also reached the stage of Chilean music, performing three times at the Viña Del Mar Festival, being the bass player and composer of many of the band's songs.
The recruiting of the other members was slow and not easy, buying instruments a little and playing where you could. The surprise came when the first GONDWANA began to realize that what they did was liked, and much, achieving from the beginning have a growing and loyal following.
The international takeoff came in 2000 and has been a constant source of joy absolutely unprecedented in the Chilean music scene. The continental tours have not stopped growing, by the hand of a fanaticism that knows no borders. Alongside the refounding of the music business, GONDWANA has led an overwhelming social media activity, with records on YouTube, Facebook and other places where the Fan is the boss and not a music market that is increasingly out of the way.
Fayuca — Phoenix, Arizona based, Fayuca, is a Reggae-Rock/ Latino group, fronted by originating, member Gabo Fayuca. Their sound shifts through genres while blending modern-reggae melodies with Latin percussion, tied seamlessly by razor guitar riffs and progressive rock breakdowns.
