About the event

Enjambre, formed in California and originating from Zacatecas, Mexico have consolidated themselves as one of the most important bands in Latina America.  

Enjambre consists of the brothers Luis Humberto (vocals and guitars), Rafa (bass guitar and vocals) and Julian Navejas (keyboards and vocals) and Angel Sánchez (drums).

The members of the group are originally from Fresnillo, Zacatecas, but in 1998 the Navejas brothers and Angel Sánchez changed their residence to Santa Ana, California, in the United States, where they ended up forming the band Enjambre. In 2004, the group released Consuelo en Domingo”, their first LP, which earned them great prestige in U.S. underground circles.

In 2007, Enjambre launched their next álbum called El Segundo es Felino”, produced by Julián Navejas, which includes 14 tracks that reflect the beneficial influence of boleros and ballads from the sixties and seventies. Towards mid-2008, having toured the Mexican Republic, the band decides to move to Mexico City since that was the place of greatest acclaim, giving start to their Mexican Dream.

Enjambre presented their third álbum in 2010. It was called Daltónico” and reached a broader audience beyond the underground realm. The album had such an impact that they had the opportunity of performing in bigger and more prestigious venues, such as the Lunario (1,000 capacity) and then the Metropolitan Theater (3,200 capacity). According to the Rolling Stone magazine of Mexico Daltónico” was one of the best albums of 2010. The group achieved their peak with their vibrant performances at the Vive Latino Festival, a stage where they showed their impact on the audience and a musical strength only present in a few Mexican rock groups, as well as their first tour throughout the Mexican Republic.

In 2012 the group released their fourth álbum called Huéspedes del Orbe.” This album provided Enjambre the opportunity to include U.S. cities in their tour, as well as Argentina, Colombia and Uruguay, besides touring Mexico once more with sold-out shows at prestigious venues such as the Auditorio Nacional (10,000 capacity) in Mexico City.

Their fifth album, Proaño” (2014), had them touring the same countries they had toured before, and on this occasion they finished their tour at the Palacio de los Deportes in front of 15,000 people who were singing all of their songs. Daltónico, Huéspedes del Orbe and Proaño all surpassed the platinum record classification based on the sales, and this was celebrated in front of 100,000 fans at the Zócalo in Mexico City as a closing act during the Youth Week at the end of 2016.

In May of 2017 Enjambre launched their album Imperfecto Extraño” that reached first place in domestic sales, and the group embarked on a tour that featured over 40 shows in Mexico and the United States, closing with a fully Sold Out Palacio de los Deportes Arena in Mexico City on November 30th, 2019, in front of 16,000 ecstatic fans.

In September 2020, Enjambre launch Próximos Prójimos during the pandemic, playing the complete album in a Live Streaming Concert hours before the official Release of the album.  During that year they performed in key live streaming events including Pal Norte Virtual Festival, Cosquin Rock Online Festival and their own Live from The Bufa Hill. 

In October 2021 Ambrosia, their first fully English language EP that included 4 songs.

2021-2022 has been the most productive touring season of Enjambre, seeing them perform extensively across Mexico, the USA, Argentina, Colombia and Peru, consolidating their fanbase and growing into the hearts of new generations that value good authentic rock music.
