Los Bitchos, a London-based, globe-spanning 4-piece of women who all met through late night parties and mutual friends, have created their debut album by fusing a retro-futuristic blend of Peruvian chicha, Argentine cumbia, Turkish psych, and surf guitars.

Produced by Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos, Let the Festivities Begin! is a collection of instrumental voyages that evoke vivid scenes that arrives on February 4th from City Slang Records. Singles from the album released so far include “Las Panteras,” “Good to Go!,”and “Pista (Fresh Start).”
