The Roots Of Chicha - Psychedelic Cumbias From Peru (Vinyl LP - 2 LP Set, Gatefold Plus Full Color 11x11 20 Page Booklet)
(Barbés BR0032 LP), Released 2011;
Editor's Pick:
Gorgeous and heavy (nearly 2 lbs.!) 2 LP vinyl package that comes as a gatefold and lavish color 11x11" 20 page booklet. Super nice!
Chicha started out in the late sixties, in the oil-boom cities of the Peruvian Amazon. Cumbias Amazonicas, as ther were first known, were loosely inspired by Colombian cumbias but incorporated the distinctive pentatonic scales of Andean melodies, some Cuban guajiras, and the psychedelic sounds of surf guitars, wah-wah pedals, farfisa organs, and moog synthesizers. Very much like Jamaican Ska or Congolese Soukous, Chicha is western-influenced indigenous music geared toward the new urban masses who wholly identified with the new electric hybrid.

This is great stuff. Some of it totally weird, like if The Munsters threw a party they'd definitely play Los Hijos del Sol or Juan Wong Paredes (listen to that organ!). Gotta love this stuff...
Highly Recommended. (BP, 2011-09-26)
