Born in different states from Mexico, the six musicians in Troker have diverse musical backgrounds, which add richness to their music: jazz, rock, funk, psychedelic, hip hop, and even cumbia is explored in their vibrant compositions.

They began in 2004 as a bar band in Guadalajara (where they now live) and learned how to get an audience on its feet, found their voice, and developed a personal, unique sound in the process. Over the last decade, Troker has expanded from hard-gigging to shows all across Mexico, Latin America, the United States, and Europe. But the band’s biggest moment came last year, when became the first band to play twice, in consecutive years, at the West Holts Stage in the legendary Glastonbury Festival in England. Their concerts are, in the words of All About Jazz, “noisy, chaotic, sprawling, messy, and altogether wonderful.”

Troker is an instrumental hard-groove band that fuses jazz, rock, and funk with anything they find on the way, leaving behind a Mexican flair. After 10 years of juxtaposing pulp fiction-esque vamps and high-stakes musicianship, Troker knows what it takes to move a crowd.
