CHICHA LIBRE CD RELEASE PARTY At 92Y Tribeca Saturday May 19th

CANIBALISMO (Barbès/Crammed Disc)
At 92Y Tribeca
Saturday May 19th. 9:00pm


After a South American Tour which took us to Bogota, Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Santiago as well as a detour through Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, we are finally back in NY and ready to release our new album, “Canibalismo”. We can’t wait to share the record with you – and really hope you can make it there this Saturday.
We’ll be going on at 9:00pm and playing mostly songs from the new album. Our friends Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty have created a video backdrop for the occasion, and DJ Sultan, from Mexco, will make you dance after the show. It should be a great night, we swear, and if you had any intention of coming to see us in the next few months, this would be the best opportunity.

– You can watch our video of La Plata, filmed on an Iphone in Montevideo, Buenos Aires and Cordoba.
– The new album came out last week and is already getting some nice attention. It is number 2 on the CMJ World Music Chart and number 8 on the BIllboard World Chart.
