Bio

Tijuana Cartel have established themselves on the Australian music scene as one of the country's most exciting live acts, combining the sounds of the Middle East, India and Spain with a psychedelic and atmospheric approach to song writing.

Based in deep electronic roots with a concoction of multi-layered grooves, splashes of Middle Eastern vocals, lilting Moby-esque soundscapes, Flamenco and slide guitar, trumpet, live & electronic world beats and percussion, influenced heavily by break beats.

The four-piece formed on the Gold Coast in the 1990s and have since built a firm reputation as a global force, notching up residencies in Mumbai, Thailand, Bali’s KuDeTa Bar and Beijing’s famous Loong Bar during the 2008 Olympic Games.

The band has also been a familiar face on the international festival circuit, playing stages across Europe and the USA as well as Australia's most loved events including Peats Ridge, Rainbow Serpent, Wave Rock, Splendour In The Grass, Blusfest, Woodford, Falls Festival and more!
