AMPHITHEATRE STAGE - Friday 12th JULY
Los Gusanos was formed from the mutual adoration of Oscar Peterson and Errol Garner and the incredible musical dynamics and interplay permitted in trio format. The group have evolved musically to incorporate a concoction of Latin and Afro-Carribean influences within their Blues and Jazz roots to develop a diverse and eclectic sound. Their live shows are energetic and virtuosic; and have been likened to watching “a Hendrix jam at a latin dive-bar”.
In June 2017 Los Gusanos collaborated with a small Bristol label Tapedown Records, to release their debut single “Champeta”. This was followed by a European tour and a residency at London’s prestigious Troubadour venue, in Earl’s Court.
In 2018 they reworked Kenny Burrell’s classic “Chitlins Con Carne” and Bullerengue “Por Qué Me Pegas?”. Accompanying tour dates have included London Jazz Fest, Cheltenham Jazz Fest and Stroud Jazz festival.
