Los Paja Brava is an eclectic group whose Latin roots run deep in Mexican, Chilean, Spanish, and Italian cultures that found each other in Rotterdam. Their coming together creates an explosive cocktail of cumbia, rock, ska, rumba and dynamite that brings down the house every time they take the stage.
With its perfectly chaotic beats, Los Paja Brava unites in the individual passion of its members for what they call “Freak’n Della Distropica”, a sweet and sour mix of the band’s signature style that includes a generous shot of Latin American Mojo, with urban and alternative roots .
The band hit the scene in 2015, taking festivals (Lowlands, Zwarte Cross, Polé Polé, Paaspop, Oerol, and more) by storm, winning over audiences around the Netherlands with energy and showmanship that make each concert a unique experience. In recent years, they have toured 100 different cities and played more than 150 mind blowing shows.
It’s debut album, “Mighty Mighty Freak’n della Distropica”, was released in 2017, and received praise from fans and the press alike, earning it a nomination for “Best Album of the Year” at the Rotterdam Music Awards.
Los Paja Brava crossed paths with Kimi Vera, a singer-songwriter from Barcelona, the connection was instantaneous and led to the formation of a new sound. The resulting sound of this fusion can be heard in the singles: “Dueño de Todo”, “Pitillo”, “Viudos de Verano”, “Levántate”.
