For more than 20 years, Eblis Alvarez (Meridian Brothers), Mario Galeano (Frente Cumbiero, Ondatropica), and Pedro Ojeda (Romperayo, Sidestepper) have been exposed to Latin American tropical types of music that, for many years (and still recently), have been relegated to the last place of good taste. Vallenato, Peruvian chicha, Colombian raspa, champeta, some African sounds and cumbia, in its different genres (sabanera, rabajada, sonidera), make part of the new style that Los Pirañas expose in the agitated Colombian music scene. Their debut album Toma Tu Jabón Kapax (VAMPI 148CD/LP, 2013) is deliberately strident and still - you can easily dance to it. In 2013, they released the 7" single Salvemos Nuestro Folclor and a video, directed by artists Mateo Rivano and Santiago Mora. Their second LP, La Diversión Que Hacía Falta En Mi País, was recorded in June 2014, in collaboration with Quantic (Will Hollland), recorded on analog tape and mixed live.
