Again, the Rototom opens its doors to music styles characterized by diversity and fusion, in this case for Muchachito Bombo Infierno who will perform for the first time at the festival.
Muchachito is called Jairo Perera, born in 1975 in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, a suburb of Bacelona. In 1993 he founded his band Trimelón de Naranjus which persisted until 2000. By then, he started performing solo in innumerable bars, developing the "Rumboxing": rumba and swing in a speed that can only be done by him.
In 2005 'Vamos que nos Vamos' is published and for the live shows the whole band Gigoleto Brass joins him in order to support his swing. The painter Santos de Veracruz, who does everything from posters to graphical art, is painting during the show. In 2007 he establishes his own label 'El Orfanato Eléctrico' and edits 'Visto lo Visto'. In 2010 he publishes his third album 'Idas y Vueltas' under his label.
At the Sunsplash he will give one of few live performances this summer and it will be an original and unpredictable show with tinges of rumba, swing and ska...
