Biography: The motto of the group is : « Chicholina Sound Machine is our name, tropical punk is our game, and we don't like to play by the rules. »
The group comes straight from Brooklyn, the New York to the world, their mission is to convert every listener to our tropical punk bing bang : not to mention a « «Yalla yalla yalla ! » an « oom-pah-pah » and a sound that you won’t want to take sitting down.
Their « green card nation sound » is a reflection of their struggle to survive in the wonderworld full of policies and politics. The musicians of the group are among those that dare to swim upstream : melting beaurocratic melodies and working class rhythms.
