El Flecha Negra is a roaring musical river fed from various cultural sources. With musicians from Chile, Peru, Spain, and Germany they merge traditional styles like Cumbia and Reggae with Mestizo and Peruvian Chicha sounds. A wild and unique blend that flows together straight into the heart!
With their latest album “Tropikal Passport” the band delivers a danceable yet profound statement, combining South American roots with Caribbean ease.
In the summer of 2014 El Flecha Negra began as a busking trio with guitar, upright bass, cajon and three-part vocals, and quickly became a sought-after live band renowned for their energetic shows.
Recording “Tropikal Passport” allowed the band to develop their sound further. With the addition of two trumpets, drums, traditional flutes, and a psychedelic Chicha-guitar, El Flecha Negra grew into a quintet - A charismatic, multicultural band from four different countries and two continents.
The thirteen songs of “Tropikal Passport” tell of hopes and dreams — different continents becoming one, of freedom and love, of setting out on a journey, as well as of being allowed to stay and enjoy life in a new land — these are their personal stories that brought them to where they are today.
