Listen to Chúcaro
Cocofunka is born in 2008 as a new concept within Costa Rican music creating a fusion of musical genres mixing indie, funk, rock, reggae, and alternative latin sounds.
For these six characters drawn from fiction, their particular energy and live show - a blend of psychedelic and dancing beats - has allowed them to be considered one of the top bands of the agitated Costa Rican music scene, having performed in more than 400 stages and traveled throughout Mexico, Peru, Nicaragua, Panama and USA.
Playing major festivals and sharing bills with everyone from Los Amigos Invisibles, Café Tacvba to Novalima and Chico Trujillo, Red Bull tapped the band as thought leaders and agreed to support their next album. Cocofunka will be presenting Chúcaro (out Feb 26), produced by Bomba Estereo's sonic mastermind Felipe Alvarez and Mario Miranda at SXSW 2016.
