Born and raised in the deep outskirts of Mexico City, the Gama brothers are keeping alive their family's rich legacy of marimba music with their latest project, Son Rompe Pera, their fresh take challenging the limits of this folk icon as never before, moving it into the 21st century garage/punk world of urban misfits. They grew up performing alongside their father at weddings, birthday parties and in the street, but in their teenage rebel years left the marimba behind to play in various punk, rockabilly and ska bands. Now they've come full circle and the marimba is once again leading the way at the head of a true rock mestizo band, combining folk with their unstoppable garage-marimba-punk-cumbia repertoire of Mexican, Peruvian, and Colombian classics, original material, and a speciality of surprise cover versions.
