Austin-based Latin fusion band La Guerrilla is the brainchild of Peruvian singer-songwriter Enrique Rumiche. With one of the most original sounds in Austin, the group incorporates elements of punk, ska and reggae with traditional Latin rhythms. Early on in their career, the band branded their music as “gypsy-punk.” Currently La Guerrilla is preparing to record their first full length record, collaborating with members of Black Joe Lewis and Grammy Award winners Grupo Fantasma.
Today La Guerrilla is celebrating the release of their first official music video for their song “Erika.” The song is a step in a different direction from the band’s early world music and punk rock en Español fusion. From their latest EP Adiós La La Land ?, “Erika” shows the more romantic side of the group. Shot on South Congress and Auditorium Shores, La Guerrilla frontman Enrique Rumiche directed the video with C.J. Robles.
