Tijuana Cartel at the Mullumbimby Ex Services on Friday December 20

Tijuana Cartel

Mullumbimby Ex-Services | Friday 20 December  |  $30

Following on from a mammoth 2019 with three months of sold-out Australian winter touring, and a successive European tour, Electro-Roots legends, Tijuana Cartel return to Australia for a few very special headline shows.

Put simply, there isn’t another band doing what they do. Having spent the last decade mixing influences that haven’t been fused in the past, their penchant is for Middle Eastern scales, beats that get a floor moving and a general psychedelic approach in song structure and ethos. Not married to one genre or another, they happily change direction in search of new flavours and inspiration whenever the moment takes them there.

They play the Mullumbimby Ex-Services on Friday 20 December.
