Bio

Memo Pimiento Electric Orchestra is a fusion of the latin american cumbia culture root (peruvian chicha, mexican sonidera and argentinian villera) and the european electro music (synthpop, krautrock, industrial) with a psychodelic hint. Memo is a live producer and musician who throws sounds and samples from analog and digital modified synths and effect boxes, supported by a frenetic girl singer/MC, a rampant percussionist and wraparound visuals.

"Some south american genious trance electronic cumbia artists live nearby (Brussels) Did you know that? That non-stopping tropical melodic dance machine from overseas -and from here- is nice, fun, sexy, smily and INESCAPABLE" Walvis Bar. BXL.

"Memo Pimiento se ha caracterizado por ser un músico que rompe el escenario con sus shows en vivo; perfecta fusión es la que hace con la electro cumbia, los sintetizadores, y una vocalista que se complementan con un show audiovisual muy interesante. Memo es un hombre lleno de talentos" Salon Pata Negra. CDMX

"We sold the same quantity of alcohol on the new year's Eve than on the Memo Pimiento's concert night" El Santo Luchador. Isla Mujeres MX
