Gio Chamba — a Latin-fusion duo composed of Gio Chamba on guitar and vocals and Coffee Guzman on percussion — is known for creating sounds that span from cumbia to hip-hop. The duo is teaming up with Corpus Christi’s Príncipe Q, nephew of late Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla, for the first single from their debut album TEJAS. The energy-filled track, “Flamin’ Hot Chido,” showcases these artists’ love for Texan cumbia, rock n’ roll and beat-heavy jams.

Charged with Gio’s Latin rock guitar melodies and Coffee’s high-powered conga action, their upcoming debut album TEJAS presents a dynamic partnership between Texas-based producers who aim to blend club styles like trap, moombahton and hip hop with tropical melodies ranging from Colombian cumbia to mid ’60s boogaloo.

Shot at Smither Park, a feature of local landmark The Orange Show, the video for “Flamin’ Hot Chido” was filmed, directed and edited by Quite Frankly with visuals provided by Alex Ramos. Check out the video prior to the album release show for TEJAS on Friday, August 4 at The Secret Group (2101 Polk) as they perform alongside acts Príncipe Q and Latin Grammy nominated producer/DJ El Dusty.
