Los Pitutos is a Chilean-Colombian band, founded in Berlin in 2015, which specialises in adaptations of cumbias, Boleros and other musical Rythms from latinamerica in their compositions influenced by musical movements from the 60 and 70s in North America such as funk, Soul, Boogaloo among others, leading to a unique mixture which captivates its audience and brings it to Latin America on a one way ticket. Founded by classically trained young Chilean and Colombian musicians, who all came to Germany to study and to work, Los Pitutos manages to resurrect a bygone world, a world full of longing, warm Latin – American nights and charm of the slower century.
Los Pitutos have performed throughout Germany, including on the stage of the famous Berlin and Munich Philharmonics. They regularly perform in German jazz clubs, at European music festivals, and as soloists with symphony orchestras.
