Los Borrachos
Los Borrachos
15 years ago, in a darkly lit bar in the remote barrio of Irving Park and Damen, the philosophy of Salsafunkadisco was hatched by 8 gentlemen musicians from various well known Chicago collectives. They would take rock music staples from the 60's, 70s and 80's and twist them into maniacal magic, pouring tequila over them and setting them on fire - craftily reinventing the songs from Samba, Salsa, Merengue, Tango, and Bossa Nova rhythms. Paint It Black (Rolling Stones) as a sublime Tango... We're Not Gonna Take It (Twisted Sister) rolled out as an oom-pa-pa Mexican Polka... Panama (Van Halen) morphed into a scorching Samba... Smoke On The Water (Deep Purple) went Bossa Nova and the list goes on, Prepare to be overwhelmed by the spectacle that is: Los Borrachos!
