The band was originally formed when some of the band’s founders moved from the town of Moyobamba in Peruvian Amazonia to Lima in 1972; they were signed by the record label Infopesa the next year and would go on to release nine albums and two compilation records with the label.[2] Their music bears influence from psychedelic and surf rock as well as cumbia,[3] with members of the band citing the music of groups such as Los Destellos and Los Chamas as important influences.[4] The band often emphasised their connection with the Peruvian jungle.[5]
