If Salvador Dali ever made a heist movie, then Mexico’s Troker would have been the soundtrack; hard-groove blend of jazz, funk, DJ scratching and mariachi tradition of their homeland. Their sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous, turning on a dime to switch from precise and complex to wild and free. Brewed in the land of Tequila and toured across Europe, North and South America, Troker’s music is a powerful expression of contemporary Mexico.
After 10 years of juxtaposing pulp fiction-esque vamps and high-stakes musicianship, Troker knows what it takes to move a crowd. They began as a bar band in their hometown of Guadalajara, they learned how to get an audience on its feet, finding their voice and developing a personal, unique sound in the process. Troker shined particularly bright in 2013 -2014, becoming the first band in the history to play twice, in consecutive years, at the West Holts Stage at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in England.
