This was a band with a short history. Not much happened, there were numerous concerts. We played a fusion of Latin & Rock in a trio line-up.
In the beginning the band was called Los Matatigres – then there was a change of concept and the new name „Chilango Cachaco“ was found! We took the first photos in April in the 70s shop del Sol in Wuppertal. Unfortunately we realised that although the name was cool, most people either couldn’t pronounce the name „Tschlango Katschako“ or couldn’t even remember it! My band colleague Edgar simply renamed the band „Chango Leon“ (=monkey lion) and the name was immediately memorable and phonetically no longer a disaster!
