Today we’d like to introduce you to Los Malditos.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
We’ve all been friends a long time. It really all began in a parking lot in front of our favorite hang-out spot. Once we got kicked out, the after party continued with cumbias in the parking lot till the cops got called.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
We’ve all been on the same page from the beginning. Our growth has been organic and luckily, there hasn’t been any issues we haven’t worked out. The most difficult decision that continues to occur is whether we are drinking White Claws or beer for the night.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
We are a six-piece band whose main goal is to create a party environment for the crowd. We play cumbias that are inspired by traditional Colombian ballenato and Peruvian chicha. We are most proud of our growth considering some of us haven’t been in a band before. We strive to write our own original music to bring something fresh to the classic cumbias we already love.
Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
This band started out as a quarantine activity. We have a few band members that had never even picked up an instrument before! And here we are a year later.
