All the Way From Peru: the Rock Band Contracorriente
Directly from the land of the Incas and Machu Picchu, Peru. Contracorriente is a band that know what they are doing. Considered by many as the "Next Big Thing" to come out of South America, these guys play huge shows and festivals in their region and have shared stage with major bands like Iron Maiden, Alice in Chains, Sepultura and many others. They have been quoted by people like Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden and Paula Abdul of American Idol as "inspirational" and "full of energy". This will be Contracorriente's first ever appearance in the U.S., specially for NY Empire State Tattoo Expo! Definitely something not to missInstagram: @contracorrienteband
Plomo doesn’t really consider himself a magician. He calls himself a trickster, using different experiences and disciplines to tell a story, to move his audience while creating a character that bends the traditional rules of magic, adding humor to it and finding the new within the old.
As founder and director of Casa Májika, one of the foremost magician collectives in Latin America that acts as a kind of brotherhood, he’s performed in thousands of private shows, as well as over 20 one-man shows that have been a success both in Perú and Argentina. For the first time ever, his act comes to New York for the New York Empire State Tattoo Expo.
