Tell me about your history? How did you get where you are now?
Chimparade was formed by Ignacio Moreno (guitar) and Licha Mendoza (bass) in October 2002. In one of those coincidences of life, they were drinking wine in a park in the center of Bogotá deciding to make a band. Licha was guitarist but decided to change his six strings for the deeper four strings. After playing for their friends with a drum machine, Cristhian Quimbay entered the Chimparade's life, changing the electronic percussion, for human percussion. In July of 2004, the band suddenly recorded a demo with four songs and one extra track (electronic) made by the vocalist. The demo is called; Demo 2004. One year later, the band make their second studio work called Vol. 0.5 with four new songs.
