Clinging to music, Rui Pereira (lead vocals / guitar) moved to the beach and recorded a demo tape which would later become "TOURISTA".
Sandro Labenita (drums/chorus) dreamt that he played in a band with Rui. After bringing this up during a party they were in, Rui invited him to become part of the project.
Genko (synths/melodica/chorus/bass/piano) joined the band after remixing one of their songs, "Thais", and having shared the stage with them a couple of times playing as "i am genko".
And thus, the band was formed, a proposal regarded by some as "indie pop" and "dance rock", but that mostly, according to the band, is just fun.
"Tourista is a peruvian indie rock band that packs a latin american punch. They make music that includes afroperuvian beats, andean melodies and tropical sounds. They are currently working on their new album which is scheduled to be released in early 2016."
