Biography

More than a band, the Chilean Banda Conmocion (sic) is an artistic collective, nineteen musicians who enjoy playing among the people and over the stage. It isn’t weird to see them putting their instruments down during their presentations, playing while they get comfortable among their audence, then everything becomes into a delirious carnival, and a big party on the concrete. “La Conmocion” is a troup, a family which has played together for 7 years by now, and maybe that’s why instead of records, their memories are only in those who have had the pleasure of being there. They started in 2001 as a parallel musical proyect of Mendicantes, and then, they continued playing in ceremonies like marriages, baptisms and funerals, before they got to the stages on 2005.

They are attached to the instrumental northern tambo, traditional parties, the cumbia, the porro, the cuyahuadas, vals, the bolero, the San Juanito. We dare to say they have chosen as their roots the love they have to the Latin American music, and since some years by now they have included some gypsy music; and that is how they have extended and spread their music, mixing as if they were some saltpeter stillworking band. Banda Conmocion have shared stage lately with artists like Mankasaya, Arak Pacha, Mauricio Redoles, Manuel Sánchez, Alfonso Rubio, Los Mentaos, Los Trukeros, Escuela Chinchin Tirapie, Juana Fe, La Mano Ajena, Chico Trujillo, La Floripondio, Los Fiscales Ad-Hok, Los Miserables, Patogallina Saundmachin, Sonora Palacios, Sinergia, Anita Tijoux, Escaso Aporte, Sonora de Llegar, Sol y Lluvia, Francesca Ancarola, José Sevez, Banda Fuerza Maestra , Banda Proyección, La Todo Mal Orquesta, Es Comediant,among some others.
