ZZK Raising Funds, Taking Chancha via Circuito, Tremor, El Remolón, and More to North America

A couple months ago, we shared some news about Buenos Aires-based cumbia digital label ZZK prepping a lengthy tour which would include a full list of North American dates. Well, some of those dates have been announced, and it looks like a bit of the West Coast will be treated to the likes of Tremor, El Remolón (pictured), Chancha via Circuito, and El G come late July/early August. Before the troupe heads out, however, money must be raised, and the powers that be at ZZK have concocted a fresh idea to do so. Their press release reads: "The Kickstarter project, will give 'pledges' music and music tickets, but the higher you donate the more personal it will get—from dinner with the ZZK crew to having record label head honcho El G personally DJ your next event." Check out the details for the fundraiser here, and check out the first handful of dates for the ZZK Northern Hemisphere Tour below.

July 23 – Martha’s Vineyard, MA – Martha’s V
July 24 – Montreal, PQ - Divan Oranage
July 31 – Denver, CO - Biennial of the Americas
August 1 – Salt Lake City – Urban Lounge
August 3 – Seattle, WA – Crocodile
