Los Pirañas is the sound of three Colombian musicians taking their musical heritage into strange and new territory. The group treat Colombian styles such as cumbia, champeta and lambada exactly how Konono N°1 treated Congolese music. The band got started as a side project of members of Frente Cumbiero and Meridian Brothers, two of Colombia’s many interesting bands.
Los Pirañas have released two albums, the latest from 2015 is called La Diversión Que Hacía Falta en Mi País (The Fun that was Missing in my Country).
