Banda de Turistas formed in 2006 when the 5 artists were only 18 years old and quickly turned heads across their hometown of Buenos Aires. The retro rock group soon caught the ear of local rock icon Babasonicos frontman Adrian Dargelos as well as Pulp’s legendary vocalist Jarvis Cocker, who asked them to open several shows in Buenos Aires. Banda de Turistas made their US debut later at New York City’s iconic Mercury Lounge and have continued gathering a passionate fanbase across the Americas.
