Biography

There are at least two bands named Pacha:

(1) Pacha Massive (from Pachamama, meaning ‘mother earth’), the debut MTV Tr3s’ “Descubre and Download” artist, has been making a buzz since playing their first gig at Madison Square Garden in 2004 (opening for Aterciopelados). The Bronx-based act’s rhythmic blend of funky Latin jams with Colombian cumbia, Afro-Cuban son, Jamaican reggae-dancehall, dub and drum-and-bass has made them a New York club favorite. DJ Nova (writer/producer, King Chango, SiSé, Om) on keys/guitar and Maya (writer/bass) make up the core of Pacha Massive, often sharing the stage with up to seven or eight collaborators. They are the first U.S. group to be signed by Nacional Records.

Exposed from birth to the pulse of Palo, Son, Cumbia, Reggae and the whole gamma of the Afro-New World tradition, Pacha concoct a positively charged blend that will hit you like a rum laced organic smoothie on the hottest summer day.

The duo met in New York while working on a project with Ivan Benavides (Sidestepper, Bloque, Carlos Vives) where a creative collaboration between the two led to the formation of Pacha Massive in 2005.

After winning the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) Battle of the Bands contest (previous winners include Kinky and Los Abandoned who have both gone on to launch successful careers) the duo caught the attention of Nacional Records. Pacha Massive’s infectious track “Don’t Let Go” was featured last year on the Nacional Records soundtrack to the box-office hit “La Mujer de Mi Hermano,” and landed airplay on such leading tastemaker stations as Indie 103.1 (Los Angeles), KCRW (Los Angeles), KEXP (Seattle), and KUT (Austin).

    Can we get some more stuff from Pierre Guy-Blanchard? "Affaires Étrangères" was one of my favorite 2012 releases.

    este grupo se llama pacha massive no pacha a secas, lo que puede causar confusión
