MAGIC MOUTH is Church. Is Punk. Is Funk. Is Soul. Is Pure Rock 'N Roll
Born in Portland, OR with a mutual love of Nina Simone and roots music, Magic Mouth grew. Their blend of punk, funk and soul
has capitulated them onto the front lines of Portland's explosive music scene. Their success is rooted in the power of their live
performance, a swirling storm of sweat and groove that creates a subversively church-like experience that is more ritual than
In the deep vein filled tropical jungles of each our hearts lies the frenetic rhythm of Cumbia, music of the Southern American
Hemisphere that has roots cast centuries deep and continents wide. Orquestra Pacifico Tropical have in their brief explosive
tenure taken the addictive rhythms of Cumbia and accomplished what musicians across continents and generations have done,
bringing crowds in the clubs and forests of the Pacific Northwest into a blistering dance frenzy. Live is where you will hear the
ecstatic thump, rumble and sheer brilliance of experiencing the racing rhythms of Coastal Colombia side by side with the
psychedelic guitar exploration of the the Peruvian rainforest. Always respecting those who came and innovated before them
while forging their own uniquely Portland stamp on the music. Eleven friends brought together in the spirit of capturing and
breathing new life into varieties of Cumbia with an arsenal of percussion, woodwinds, horns and guitars.
Featuring members of Sun Angle, Deer Or The Doe, O Bruxo, IOA, Lewi Longmire Band, Point Juncture, Wa., Gulls,
Modernstate, Team Evil, Jippedo. Orquestra Pacifico Tropical’s wall of sound is dedicated to expanding the music of Central and
South America to the people and dance floors of the Pacific Northwest.
