La canción de la semana #435

Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to present an amazing instrumental band from Mexico City that I've just discovered today: Sonido Gallo Negro! According to their Facebook page,

Sonido Gallo Negro es un proyecto que retoma el sonido psicodélico de la cumbia peruana de los años 70's, fusionándolo con actitud de garage. Órganos Farfisa, guitarras con Fuzz, y el inseparable güiro son los elementos principales de la cumbia lisérgica de esta agrupación. Subgéneros como la Chicha, la Cumbia Amazónica y el Boogaloo se hacen presentes cuando la banda sube al escenario...
This week's song is Inca-A-delic, from the band's second album, Sendero Místico.
