The Paris-based band set out to play dance yet truly rock & roll tunes. Core members, Chema and Miguel, shared this musical crave while trying to play the piano in a college party in the early 2010’s. They were not in the City of Light by coincidence. Both had left their hometown Lima to pursue their creative endeavors. Armed with covers and their first compositions, the duet performed underground concerts all around the city. After recruiting bass player Léo and drummer Susana, they became Rímac: brave energy plus Latin influences inspired by the oracle-river of the mythical Pachacamac city.
