Born and raised in San Francisco, brothers Ron and Alfonso Portillo were influenced by bands such as Santana, Malo, War, El Chicano, Azteca, and Journey. Having come from a musical family, the brothers started playing music together in the early 80's. They continued on their musical journey and were later discovered by Victor Pamiroyan, manager of Latin legend Pete Escovedo, who recognized Los Cochinos as an up and coming band that is well on its way to success in the Latin rock music scene.
Ron Portillo's talented hands create the Latin flavored songs on the keyboard and Alfonso creates the melodies on his guitar with feeling and passion. Together, they create a special sound that has been compared to the early sound of Santana, El Chicano and other Latin Rock style bands.
LUMBRE is a Latin Rock Band primarily hailing from San Jose CA and is now taking flight with the ambition of ascending into the music scene all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Lumbre is led by guitarist/songwriter Robert Banda, who has crafted his music into a fusion of rock and blues that's infused with congas and percussion of an Afro/Cuban flavor. Lumbre's goal is to continue carrying the flag to new heights, by introducing fans of the genre to Lumbre's fiery and colorful originals. Lumbre is confident that you will enjoy our songs as a truly genuine representation of Latin Rock's birthplace. Open your mind, heart and spirit and let it be filled with a new version/presentation of the Bay Area's Latin Rock that was born in the 60's & 70's.
