MAMIHLAPINATAPAI is a world music collective based in The Netherlands, inspired by bands such as Manu Chao, Che Sudaka and La Troba Kung-Fú. Late 2014, Spanish childhood friends Luciano Varela and Fernan Mejuto met again in the city of The Hague. While playing in the streets, the family got bigger and the sound became richer. Influences like latin, balkan, ska, reggae, flamenco and cumbia were added as ingredients to a party cocktail. With a lot of happiness, ecstatic energy and a powerful attitude, MAMIHLAPINATAPAI is ready to bring down the stages around the world.
