Born in Medellin, Colombia, but based in Montreal for the past decade, Ramon Chicharron is a nomadic soul who composed most of his second opus Merecumbé alone in the Costa Rican jungle surrounded by howler monkeys. With his futuristic psycho-tropical grooves, tropical rhythms (cumbia & champeta) and Afro-Colombian drums – along with lyrics tackling issues like the plight of migrants – the talented multi-instrumentalist hopes to spread a message of consciousness inspired by Pachamama (Mother Earth) while adapting his native folklore to global sounds.
