description

Originally released in 2010. Available again after several years out of print. Cumbia and Chicha ! Experimental Guitar-driven Tropical Sounds from Peru 1966-1978. In 1960s Peru, a thrilling and unstoppable style of music is born: Peruvian cumbia, also known as "chicha".

The marriage between folklore and cumbia had taken place. The groups preserved the fusion of fox trot and mambo rhythms along with huayno and cumbia in the execution of their music. That feeling would be the basis for the success of such unorthodox and unclassifiable songs as 'La chichera' or 'Petipan'. The recording in 1965 of these two songs by Los Demonios del Mantaro on a seminal 45 rpm with the Sono Radio label was the jumping off point for the birth of cumbia andina, also called "chicha" precisely for this song, which is dedicated to a vendor of the well-known Incan liquor. The electric shock of rock guitars enters the world o
