The Lucha Libre masked cumbia group known as El Conjunto Nueva Ola (ECNO) are known in their native Mexico City as the “heroes of rhythm” for their superbly hi-NRG and tighter-’n-a-rat’s-ass stage shows featuring truly funny songs that heap amusement on pop culture in parodies of contemporary Latin and North American musical acts. With their elaborately ornate costumes and kustom-krafted Mexican wrestling masks they’re a laff-riot, true, but musically this is a ferociously slamming crew whose meltdown of a panoply of skanky-ska/ragamuffin and trad Latin music styles (such as the Peruvian Huayno-influenced cumbia heard on their latest single, “El Deposito”) is a real dance-floor igniter. Warning: Get your tix now, because these guys have a rabid cult following who’ll be turning out in droves to pay their respects. Also at Levitt Pavilion in MacArthur Park on Saturday, July 8.
