Son Rompe Pera

(Naucalpan de Juárez, Mexico)
Genre: Cumbia, Latin, Punk, World

Naucalpan, Estado De México- Son Rompe Pera, the marimba-smashing band of
brothers from Naucalpan who have single-handedly defined the genre ‘Cumbia Punk’
and captivated audiences around the world have released their second album,
Chimborazo, today via AYA Records. The album, named after a street in Naucalpan
where a couple of the brothers live/have lived, follows their 2020 debut Batuco, and is
also a complete departure from it. While Batuco showcases a more folkloric, traditional
sound by way of 9 covers, Chimborazo delivers 12 original tracks that fiercely shake
tradition at its roots. Much closer to what the world has come to know of the band’s wild
live shows, Chimborazo is a mix of modern cumbia, tropical dance beats, hard-hitting
punk, psychedelic guitars, traditional Mexican and Colombian rhythms, horns, and a
pinch of dub and hip hop. It’s an album that is as rebellious as it is reverent– gracefully
embracing tradition while ripping it at the seams, one marimba mosh pit at a time.
