The iconic Mexican rock band La Maldita Vecindad y los Hijos del Quinto Patio packed Mexico City’s Zócalo plaza on the night of Saturday, July 16, with a free concert attended by an unprecedented 110,000 people.

Decked out in their signature baggy suits and feathered hats, La Maldita Vecindad band members performed almost their entire repertoire as fans danced and swayed along to the pulsating rhythms during the powerful three-hour concert, which culminated with the group’s most famous song “Kumbala.”

The concert, which was organized by the Mexico City Culture Secretariat, was also broadcast live on social media, with more than 60,000 fans tuning in.

One of the most influential rock bands in Mexico, La Maldita Veciddad was formed in 1985 and is considered to be one of the world’s major pioneers of rock music in Spanish.
