EL FLECHA NEGRA Freiburg El Flecha Negra charges the room with boundless positive energy and spontaneous magic. The “Black Arrow” has struck home only when there’s no stopping and everyone joins in the party. Like a rapid musical current, El Flecha Negra is fed from various sources. Being from Chile, Peru, Spain and Germany, the musicians merge traditional styles like Cumbia and Reggae with Mestizo and Peruvian Chicha sounds. A wild and unusual blend that still comes across and strikes right 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 show. Later on, in 2015, El Flecha Negra released their debut album “Schwarzwald”. They played over 200 concerts in Germany and its neighbouring countries. In 2016, the band went on a wildly successful tour through Chile. Recording “Tropikal Passport” made the band sound develop further. With the addition of two trumpets, 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. In the thirteen songs of “Tropikal Passport” the musicians tell of hopes and dreams like different continents becoming one, of freedom and love, of setting out on a journey, as well as of being allowed to stay and revel - these are their personal stories, that brought them to where they are today.
