More Info:

PSYCHEDELIC CUMBIA FROM PERU -From the late 60's through the 80's, Peruvians invented a new popular musical hybrid inspired by music from the Americas. Using the electric guitar as the primary melodic instrument, they mixed cumbia rhythms with folkloric huaynos, criollo voicings, Cuban guarachas and guajiras, rock, boogaloo, surf, psychedelia, oriental music, classical music, and bits and pieces from Brazil, France, Chile - all without ever using the words post-modern, pastiche or mélange. The Roots of Chicha, compiled by Barbès Records, was released in 2006 and became the first recording to popularize the music around the world.
